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.

Pre-heat the oven to  450 degrees Farenheit. Grease the baking pan. Place the tuna and bake.

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.
Serve hot with a slice of lemon.
How did your baked tuna turn out?
