Pan-Seared Tuna Steak

2/08/2017


I've become a really big fan of tuna and, since I've tried smoked tuna and tuna steak, I know canned tuna doesn't do justice to this gorgeous fish meat. Smoked tuna I find to be more delicious than smoked salmon but nothing can beat a good tuna steak. It's such a delicacy and it's actually not complicated to make. I've decided to pair it with organic brown basmati rice, grilled peppers and lamb's lettuce.

Ingredients: 3 bell peppers, 200g dmBIO brown basmati rice, 300g tuna steak, sea salt, black pepper, rosemary, basil  parsley, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, onion, feta cheese, lamb's lettuce

In a medium saucepan combine rice, water and a pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Brown basmati rice takes longer to cook so it will take 30 minutes to become fully cooked - that's why I'd start prepping it first. In the meanwhile, chop the bell peppers into strips. I've opted for yellow, green and red peppers for aesthetic purposes. Saute the pepper strips in a pan with some olive oil, salt, black pepper, chopped onion, rosemary and basil. They will be caramelized quickly. When done, set aside. 

Tuna steak is very similar regarding prep as rump steak. You don't want it completely cooked so pan-fried is ideal and making sure to have a fresh steak is imperative. Never undercook a tuna steak - you want the outer crust caramelized so rub the tuna steak with some olive oil, black pepper and sea salt. Pan should be pre-heated on medium heat. Since you don't want it cooked all the way through, sear on each side for 2 minutes max and you'll get the fantastic crust and the heart will be red. 

When the brown basmati rice is done, serve it with the steak and garnish with grilled peppers. Lamb's lettuce is more delicate in flavor than lettuce and serves well with some olive oil, apple cider vinegar, chopped peppers, basil, rosemary, parsley, salt and pepper. Crumble some feta cheese and you have the ultimate bohemian rhapsody for the tastebuds.

  • Postala sam velika ljubiteljica tune, pogotovo nakon što sam isprobala dimljenu tunu i stek od tune - sada znam da je konzervirana tuna daleko ispod onoga što meso ove ribe uistinu može pružiti. Dimljena tuna mi je bolja čak i od dimljenog lososa dok je stek od tune pravi delikates kojeg uopšte nije teško pripremiti. Ja sam ga odlučila servirati uz organsku smeđu basmati rižu, grilovane paprike i matovilac salatu.
  • Sastojci: 3 paprike, 200g dmBio smeđe basmati riže, 300g steka od tune, morska sol, crni biber, ruzmarin, bosiljak, peršun, maslinovo ulje, jabukovo sirće, crveni luk, feta sir, matovilac salata
  • U srednje velikoj šerpi potopiti smeđu basmati rižu u vodi i sa malo soli, dovesti je do ključanja. Smeđoj basmati riži je potrebno više vremena da se skuha tako da imate na umu kako će biti gotova za 30 minuta - zato bih počela pripreme od nje. Potom, isjeckati paprike na trakice. Iz estetskih razloga sam odabrala jednu crvenu, žutu i zelenu papriku no to nije neophodno. Propržiti ih na maslinovom ulju, crvenom luku, biberu, soli, ruzmarinu i bosiljku na par minuta. One se uskoro karamelizuju i čim budu gotove, odložiti na stranu.
  • Stek od tune je što se tiče pripreme dosta sličan ramsteku. Ne želite da bude potpuno kuhan/ispržen tako da je prženje u tavi idealno a također je veoma bitno da je meso kvalitetno i svježe. Tuna stek nikada ne smijete prepržiti - poželjna je hrskava korica a u "srcu" stek mora biti crven. Prethodno prženju, stek začiniti maslinovim uljem, biberom i soli. Tava se treba prethodno ugrijati na srednjoj vatri a stek se sa svake strane prži maksimalno 2 minute. 
  • Uz smeđu basmati rižu servirati stek od tune, ukrasiti proprženim trakicama od paprike. Matovilac salata je dosta posebna i divnog je ukusa te se lijepo slaže uz malo maslinovog ulja, jabukovog sirćeta, bibera, soli, bosiljka, ruzmarina i peršuna. Nasjeckati i malo paprike na kockice a za ultimativni doživljaj razlomiti malo fete na mrvice i posuti. Ovo je prava boemska rapsodija za nepce!
