A hoisin glaze elevates this Asian-inspired pairing of tuna and asparagus in a perfectly portioned meal for one that's ready in just 20 minutes.


Rice Noodles, dry

1 portion(s), small

Coriander, fresh

2 tablespoon(s)

Rice Wine Vinegar

1 teaspoon(s)

Soy Sauce

½ teaspoon(s)

Asparagus, raw

12 spear(s)

Tuna, raw

1 steak(s), medium

Calorie controlled cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Hoisin Sauce

1½ teaspoon(s)

Sesame Seeds

¼ teaspoon(s)


  1. Prepare the rice noodles to pack instructions, then refresh under cold running water. Drain and toss with the coriander, rice wine vinegar and soy sauce. Set aside.
  2. Mist the asparagus and tuna with cooking spray and season with a pinch of salt. Cook on a heated pan for about 4 minutes, turning the asparagus occasionally and the tuna once, until asparagus are tender and tuna is medium-rare. Brush each side of tuna with ¼ tsp hoisin sauce and cook each side for a few seconds, until glazed.
  3. Slice the tuna, then drizzle with the remaining hoisin sauce. Put the tuna and asparagus on a plate and sprinkle the sesame seeds over, serve with the noodles.


Ahi tuna is best served medium-rare, so keep a close eye on it because cook times can vary based on thickness.
