Flaxseed oil is rich in vitamin E and Omega 3s. Keep in mind that it shouldn’t be exposed to high temperatures, so reserve it for salads and other uncooked dishes.

20 oz, 4 (5-ounce) steaks

red wine vinegar

  1. Spray the broiler rack with nonstick spray and preheat the broiler.
  2. Whisk together the canola oil and soy sauce in a small bowl. Brush the mixture on both sides of the tuna. Place the steaks on the broiler rack and broil 5 inches from the heat, about 3 minutes on each side for medium or until the desired doneness.
  3. Meanwhile, to make the relish, whisk together the vinegar, flaxseed oil, ginger, and salt in a medium bowl. Add the avocado, orange sections, and onion; toss to coat. Serve with the tuna. Yields 1 tuna steak and 1⁄2 cup relish per serving.
