It’s no secret that aside from long legs, great kitchen skills are the gifts that I am not really blessed with.  Case in point: I can’t make a decent pancake and once burned Ginisang Munggo (sauteed mung beans).  That’s why I used to leave the cooking to the able hands of a helper or Dear Hubby (when he’s free).  But we haven’t had a help for a while now so I gotta “face my fear” and channel my inner Giada De Laurentiis and Nigella Lawson.  Yes, I sort of invoke their spirits to come upon my kitchen each time I had to cook :).

My objective is to make very simple and easy-to-do recipes to avoid any more kitchen disasters.  Recipes should also be healthy to complement my Balik-Alindog project, a self-imposed program to a healthier lifestyle (click here for more information).  This is my version of Pan-Seared Tuna.


MAIN INGREDIENTS:  FRESH Tuna Sashimi cut, ground pepper, salt,

FOR THE TUNA DIP: Kikkoman Soy Sauce, Sesame Oil, Sugar and Wasabi Paste. **Measurements would be according to your liking.

Greens of your choice

Your preferred salad dressings

You may top your salad with Feta Cheese too (optional)


Step 1:  Generously season the tuna with ground pepper and sprinkle with a little salt.  Let stand for about 15 minutes.

STEP 2:  Sear the tuna on a very hot pan with about 3 tablespoons of cooking oil (canola or olive oil are a healthy choice).  With this particular cut, searing should take 1 minute ONLY for each side (top and bottom).

STEP 3:  Cut the tuna in bite pieces and serve with veggie salad (with a dressing of your choice).

TUNA DIP:  Combine Kikkoman soy sauce, sesame oil, sugar and wasabi paste together in a bowl.

Believe me, this recipe is sooo easy it only takes about 30 minutes to make.  If I can do it, you can definitely do it too! 🙂  Enjoy!
