You need:

  • Tuna fillets: Deboned and Skinless. Cut into 1 inch squares.
  • One chopped onion
  • Three to Four finely chopped Green Chillies
  • Lots of Chopped Garlic.
  • Lemon and Coriander
  • Turmeric and Coriander Powder.
  • Mustard Oil.

Immerse tuna pieces in water. There must be least 2 inches of water above the tuna. Bring to a boil and wait for a foam to start forming on top of it. Remove the foam as it forms. Once the tuna pieces have cooked and this will take only about 10 minutes, remove them from the water. Let them sit in a colander. They should keep steaming away and do not do anything till its cooled. Its important that the steam escapes. We don’t want mush we want flakes. Once its cooled using your fingers, tear the pieces into smaller flakes.

Heat mustard oil in a pan. Saute onion, garlic and green chilies.

Once they are translucent add turmeric powder, coriander powder and salt. Combine and then add the Tuna. Mix well and keep frying till its all incorporated and smells awesome. Squeeze some lemon juice and garnish with coriander leaves.

Enjoy a super yummy snack or meal. Use as a sandwich filling or just as it is.

Shallow Fry Tuna

Edit

Take a Tuna filet and pat it dry. There must be no wetness on it. This is very important. Sprinkle salt and pepper on all sides of the Fish.
Heat oil and place the fish, skin side down. Four minutes later, turn it. Another four minutes and let it stand up like a Minhar from the Asterix comics. That’s for another three or four minutes.

This will drain all the oil and give you one more crispy side.

Rest for five minutes to enjoy a well done but not chewy tuna.

This is a simple recipe for a Tuna Steak, inspired by a Jamie Oliver recipe.

Roughly grind up fennel seeds, pepper and coriander seeds with salt. Massage it into the fishes along with some olive oil.

Get a girdle pan to high heat. Carefully place the fish on it and let it sizzle and steam away. About 3-4 mins later check if the fish is able to free itself from the pan. If it does not encounter resistance, flip it over. Do not ever use force on the fish.

Total cooking time will be about 4 mins per side and because we want it well done, use a spatula to lightly press it down. When the fish is bouncy on pressing its done. Total time approx 12 mins.

Drizzle a little olive oil and let it rest for at least 5 mins before slicing.

Lovely keto meal which needs nothing more to be perfect. Except some fresh coriander to counter the heat from the pepper.
