“The only thing I like better than talking about food is eating.”
If you are looking for a beef steak alternative, this tuna steak recipe is just for you. I love a good filet mignon, and I don’t really think I can get enough it, but all good things should be done in moderation- and this includes food! I put my best effort in balancing the types of meat I eat. So, when it comes to a time where there’s been too many red meats in a row, I switch it up. Going from a heavier meat to a lighter meat, resets my meals while still being utterly delicious.
Tuna is a flavorful fish and a part of the “red meats” of fish, which makes it a perfect steak substitute. It’s thickness and cut is similar to steak. The texture, while more solid and consistent, is also pretty close. Now, as tuna is fish, it will require a different method for cooking and accompanying sauces and sides. It will be a fresh dinner experience and give you something new to jazz up your weekly dinners with.
One of the best things about tuna steaks is that while tuna is a heavy for fish, it leaves you full without feeling heavy like your meal is sticking to your bones. A fish jammed pack with flavor and taste, it calls for balancing sides that won’t overpower. Lightly sauteed zucchini and even sour cream mashed potatoes goes well with this main.
