Time for another Friday Fuel nutrition idea for you to try.
Marinated Tuna Steak
Tuna is a popular salt-water fish that’s pink in colour due to it’s high content of myoglobin, an oxygen-building molecule in muscle. This allows tuna to swim very fast (some have been clocked at over 48 mph) . While eating this recipe probably won’t make you any faster, you’ll definately enjoy the taste. Paired with sesame broccoli and feta (anytime) or soy ginger lentils with baby bok choy (post-workout), this is a meal you’ll sprint to.
1tbsp Shallots (fine diced)
1 tbsp Fresh Basil (finely chopped)
2 pinches of Salt
1 pinch Chilli powder
1tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2tsp Lemon Juice
170g Albacore or Yellowfin tuna steak
Olive oil cooking spray
Mix the shallots, basil, salt, chilli powder and lemon juice in a small bowl and then coat the tuna and let marinate for 4 hours in the fridge. Turn every hour. Preheat a non-stick frying pan on medium heat. Lightly coat with spray and place tuna on to the pan. Cook and turn until lightly browned on all sides. Tuna should still be rare in the middle.
Serves 1 large or 2 small.
