Tuna Steak with Cucumber Relish

Low calorie, high protein dish

RATE:  
 

Seared tuna steaks are simple to make with a great taste. They contain essential nutrients with a combination of protein, omega-3 fatty acids, potassium, B12, and selenium. Plus, it cooks extremely quickly, meaning you won’t have to sacrifice too much time on the training field to prepare it.

As with traditional beef steaks, tuna steaks are best cooked using a high, direct heat and served less than well done. Cooking it this way avoids the fish drying out and losing its silken texture.T

This makes a perfect dish for the whole family which is not only packed with protein but is also low in fat and low in calories, making it ideal for anyone looking for a flavoursome meal without being concerned about the additional calories.
