|Fish out of water|
In the last few decades, tuna has been touted as a health food being a good source for protein and Omega 3 fatty acid, the good fat you need to normalise your body's metabolism. I love tuna when it's served fresh as sashimi or when it's grilled and served hot. But since grilling is not something you can do in a small kitchen without making the whole house smell like, well, grilled fish, I tried my hand at baking tuna.
Here's a quick and easy recipe using a simple Japanese marinade that you might want to try.
- 2 cuts of Tuna (steak cut, approx. 150 g. each)
- 3 tbsp. mirin (rice wine)
- 1 tbsp. Japanese soy sauce
- 1 tbsp honey
Mix the soy sauce, honey and mirin and marinate the tuna for at least 15 minutes or a maximum of 30 minutes.
Bake the tuna for 12- 15 minutes. Make sure you don't leave it in the oven too long or it will dry up and turn flaky.
