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.
WHAT YOU NEED:
WHAT TO DO:
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!
