Seared Tuna With Citrus Sauce

Total Time

A quick tuna meal with a difference. Tuna is meaty, and the citrus sauce goes well with it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix together the ingredients from the soy sauce down to the chilli pepper, stir well, and stand for a while for flavours to mix.
  2. Put in a suitable container in a warming oven to just warm through.
  3. Brush the tuna steaks with the olive oil and just sear quickly on both sides in a hot griddle pan over very high heat for rare meat -- or cook to your liking. Use salt to taste.
  4. Arrange the arugula on 4 plates, top each with a tuna steak, and drizzle the citrus sauce with orange segments over each serving.
  5. Serve immediately -- but can be served cold.

We enjoyed this meal last night thanks to ZWT7 and the Pacific! The arugula is a must - as it brings added flavor to the dish (hubby doesn't like it so I used an arugula blend on his and he didn't complain). I would caution to use low sodium soy for sure. And then next time I will leave the oranges out of the marinade and just put them on top for 2 reasons. . .#1 because they soaked up all the salt from the soy and lost that wonderful sweetness that complemented the dish so well and #2 they would be much prettier orange than brown! I did add some edamame and some slivers of red bell pepper for a little more color. Also of note, I didn't add the hot pepper (hubby doesn't care for hot stuff) but found that my ginger gave the dressing a good heat and zing itself. Overall, we REALLY enjoyed this dish!

This was so good. The citrus mixed with soy was a great combination. I had never cooked Tuna before, what a great recipe to start off with. Made for ZWT Shady ladies.
