Sunday is the day of the week I do food prep for the week, and this past weekend I was searching for a simple recipe for tuna steaks. Add easy to that as well. After checking quite a few and double-checking what I had on hand I came up this and it’s very good.
All you’ll need is about a pound to a pound a half of tuna steaks, 1 tbsp good extra virgin olive oil, 2 tbsp Dijon honey mustard, 2 tsp soy sauce and 2 tbsp white or rice wine vinegar. Blend all that together and place your tuna in a plastic bag or dish and pour the sauce all over it and let it sit for no more than 30 minutes to one hour. Longer than that and you’ll have mushy fish.
I used my favorite copper pan with just a light coating of EVVO and put the steaks in for about 4 minutes per side for a nice char. The steak should still be just a touch pink on the inside. And that’s it! For a few minutes prep, less than one hour of marinating and less than ten minutes on the stove or grill and your steaks are done. One for dinner and the other two in the freezer for another day.
Have a nice, quick recipe for salmon filets? Send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll let you know how it goes.

Meals make the society, hold the fabric together in lots of ways that were charming and interesting and intoxicating to me. The perfect meal, or the best meals, occur in a context that frequently has very little to do with food itself. - Anthony Bourdain
