Make an elegant light meal with fresh tuna steak, lightly seared, then served with a refreshing cucumber salad.



¼ portion(s), medium, peeled and thinly sliced

Red onion(s)

½ medium, thinly sliced

Rice Wine Vinegar

2 tablespoons

Soy Sauce

1 tablespoons

Tuna, raw

2 steak(s), medium, fresh steak

Calorie controlled cooking spray

5 spray(s)


1 bunch(es), or pea shoots

Wasabi Paste

2 teaspoons, level

Soy Sauce

2 teaspoons


  1. First prepare the salad by mixing together the cucumber, red onion, vinegar and soy sauce.
  2. Next, heat a non-stick frying pan over a high heat. Mist with cooking spray then add the tuna to the pan, cooking over a high heat to sear the fish for 1-2 minutes. Turn over and cook the other side for the same time - avoid overcooking it, or else it will be tough. Remove from the pan and allow it to rest for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Slice the tuna thinly using a sharp knife. Arrange on 2 serving plates with the cucumber salad. Serve with some watercress or pea shoots, with wasabi paste and soy sauce for dipping.
