Tuna Steaks with Mango-Mint Salsa
- (4) 6oz fresh or thawed tuna steaks, (about 1" thick)
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 recipe Mango-Mint Salsa, (recipe is below Nutritional Information)
- Using the recipe below the Nutritional Information, pepare your Mango-Mint Salsa the night before you plan to serve your tuna steaks. Allowing the salsa to chill overnight enables the multiple flavors to fully coagulate in this tasty salsa recipe. If your short on time you may cheat a little, but try to allow it to chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
- Rinse your tuna steaks under cool water, then use paper towels to pat them dry.
- Grease a large skillet with a Tbsp of olive oil, and place it over medium-high heat.
- Cook your tuna steaks in the hot skillet for 5 minutes, carefully flip them, and cook for another 4-5 minutes (just until the steaks flake when tested with a fork). Note: Avoid over-cooking the fish. It is normal, and desirable for meaty cooked tuna steaks to be slightly pink throughout the center.
- Serve with your prepared fresh Mango-Mint Salsa, and enjoy!
