No one likes a boring salad, so why not mix it up a bit! I tend to love salads all year long, but summer time is perfect season to enjoy a delicious salad packed with vitamins and nutrients. I also am more active in the summer, so I tend to get hungry often. Salad can be a light snack, or with a little help, it can also be a filling meal.
Tuna steak is one of those proteins, in my opinion, that needs bold added flavors to make it delicious. This recipe is packed with Mexican and Asian inspired elements that will leave your taste buds wanting more. The combination of cilantro, soy, ginger, jalapeno and lime is the perfect balance to the lean flesh of the tuna. The ingredients excite the dish by adding classic elements of sweet, salt, tang and spice. Pan seared tuna is finished in 2 minutes flat, enjoy as an appetizer served with crispy wontons brushed with sesame oil or as a plated an entree.
