J loves cooking fish but up until recently, I never really enjoyed or liked eating fish. It just tasted “fishy” pun intended. 🙂 One day, I was looking in the fridge to see what all I could mix together to marinate this Tuna Steak my husband had purchased from the grocery store. I pulled out some minced garlic cloves (because garlic is wonderful and I literally put it on everything), lemon juice, soy sauce, sesame oil, and chopped scallions. I decided, what the heck why not just add all these ingredients together, marinate the steaks and bake them. As soon as the timer went off and we pulled the tuna steaks out of the oven, a wonderful smell filled our home. I was so surprised, my mouth was watering and I wanted to try the fish as soon as possible (and I never say that!). I usually pair this type of tuna steaks with some steamed rice and spinach but lately we have been making fish tacos using this recipe and it is so yummy! My husband loves it and has actually substituted the Tuna for Salmon and it is still to die for! One of the easiest recipe’s ever, I highly suggest everyone to try it! This recipie will make two serving sizes and takes about 30 minutes to cook. Sesame Tuna taco photo from fitfoodiefinds.
2 tuna steaks – yellowfin is what I use
1 clove garlic, minced
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup soy sauce
1-2 Tablespoons sesame oil
1 scallion, chopped
Preheat the oven at 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients together in a medium bowl. Season the tuna steaks with salt and pepper on both sides. Place tuna steak in the marinade, make sure you coat both sides of the steak before you let it sit. Marinate for about 30 minutes in the refrigerator, turning once. REMEMBER you shouldn’t marinate the fish too long or the acid in the lemon juice will start to “cook” the fish. Bake for 30 minutes & serve immediately.
