Seared Tuna Broccoli Bowl

Lately I have been in a recipe cooking slump. So I find myself wandering the vegetable and protein areas of the market looking for something to jump out at me. For fish I usually go with salmon just because the color pulls me in. Right next to the neon orange salmon nestled a fairly inviting hunk of tuna. So once I had my protein I went back to the veggie section and decided to pair my Tuna with Broccoli.

I had a shallot at home and some brown rice so decided to make a little Asian Fusion Tuna Broccoli bowl. Super easy and healthy little meal. I used some Soy Sauce but you could whip up a little nutty Asian sauce by adding soy, peanut butter, dash of fish sauce and a squeeze of Sriracha. I just went with Soy and Sriracha but my point is to cut loose and play around with various fish and vegetables and sauces.

Ingredients:
Fresh Tuna Steak
Crown of Broccoli
Brown rice (I just used the microwavable packaged rice)
1 shallot
Sesame Seeds
Kosher Salt
Black Pepper
Soy Sauce
Sriracha or Sambal
Hot chili oil

Directions:
1. I like my broccoli on the softer side in dishes like this so I took my wok and got it up to medium heat. Put some hot chili oil (you can use any oil you want really). I cooked it for about 5-7 minutes and then added my diced shallot to.

2. While my broccoli was cooking I salted, peppered and sesame seeded both sides of my tuna steak. Before doing this pat them dry with a paper towel to make sure they stick and can crust up. I nestled my Tuna into my wok along with the broccoli and shallot. I cooked about 2-3 minutes on each side. I like my pink inside but if you don’t prefer it cook it a little longer.

3. Turn off the heat, cook/microwave your rice and add some soy sauce to your pan to coat the vegetables. Serve and enjoy IMG_0871IMG_0864
