Salad with seared tuna, mango and avocado, recipe

Here’s what you’re having for lunch:  Salad with seared tuna, avocado, mango and lots of other healthy stuff. It takes around 20 minutes to make the salad and 5 minutes to eat it, because, trust me, it’s super tasty:)

Here’s how it’s done:

Salad with seared tuna (serves 2)

Ingredients:

The Dressing:

1tsp sugar

6 tbsp fresh lime juice (approximately 2 limes depending on how juicy they are)

3 tbsp fish sauce

1 Thai bird’s eye chili, finely chopped

The Tuna:

1 tuna steak (around 7oz/200g) of good quality

Salt

Pepper

The Salad:

1 mango

1 avocado

Snow peas (as many as you like)

Shelled edamame (a handful is nice)

Fresh spinach (a handful or two)

Cilantro (a small bunch)

How it’s done:

How to make the dressing:

Mix all the ingredients in a cup or a tiny bowl. The measurements stated are approximate, so make sure you taste-test along the way. If it’s too salty, add more sugar and lime. If it lacks salt, add fish sauce. You can leave out the chili if you don’t like spicy food.

 

How to cook the tuna:

Heat a frying pan and a tbsp of oil. When the oil is hot, place the tuna in the frying pan. Sear the tuna for a minute on each side, season with salt and pepper. Let the tuna cool off before cutting it into ¼ inch slices.

 

How to make the salad:

Chop the mango and the avocado into cubes. Chop the cilantro coarsely. Mix all the other ingredients. Toss the salad in most of the dressing (leave a teaspoon or two for the tuna). Place the salad in two of your favorite bowls and arrange the sliced tuna on top. Sprinkle a little dressing over the tuna, and you’re done.

This sounds amazing! I’ve never tried to sear tuna myself before, but i do love it and often order it when I go out. I’ll need to give this a try for myself. Thanks for sharing!x
