It has officially been a week since the start of the New Year. To aid in all the weight loss and healthy eating resolutions, here is a quick and simple entrée that will look as good on your plate as it does on your waistline. One serving of this tuna (about a 4 oz. tuna steak) will run you around 250 calories. According to me, that’s practically nothing.
I hope you all are still sticking strong with your resolutions. I tend to think that week two of pretty much anything is always the hardest. Besides maybe sunbathing on a beach in the Caribbean.
My resolutions? Stop feeling guilty for absolutely everything—that has become a brand new talent of mine in the last couple of years—and stop picking at my split ends. Because that’s gross. And probably really bad for my hair.
I have felt a bit of unnecessary guilt and spied a split end or two in my hair during the past week, but I think I’ve done pretty good evading these bad habits, all things considered.
But, honestly, whether you have a healthy-eating resolution or not, you should try this tuna. I mean, 250 calories? Ten minutes in the kitchen? What do you have to lose?
seared yellowfin tuna with lemon garlic sauce
Makes 4 servings
Total time: 10 minutes
For the tuna:
2 teaspoons olive oil
4 medium yellowfin tuna steaks
Salt and pepper
For the sauce:
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1/3 cup white wine
juice of 1 lemon
Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Season tuna with salt and pepper. Place tuna in heated skillet and let cook for about 8 minutes, until tuna is light pink in the center, turning once (cooking time will depend on the size of your steak).
Meanwhile, in a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and add olive oil. Add garlic and stir constantly for about 1 minute, until garlic is golden. Stir in white wine and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer and continue cooking for about 3-4 minutes, until sauce is just slightly reduced. Stir in lemon juice and remove from heat. Serve over tuna.
That does look fantastic.
Thank you! For me, the low calorie count makes it that much more beautiful 🙂
