Tuna Steak

Hey lovely readers 🙂

Last tuesday Sabine and I felt like a cozy evening at home, cooking some dinner and drinking one (or maybe two ;)) glasses of wine. It was quite challenging to find a good menu to cook – I had like one of these days where just nothing seemed to be right and nothing appealed to me. It wasn’t until I checked out Madeleine Shaw’s website and found this super delicious tuna steak recipe. The first thing that came to my mind was: let’s go for this! The second: tuna is an endangered species… So I found myself in a little dilemma. Not very difficult to guess: I finally bought the tuna but kept in mind that this should remain an exception. Anyway – I think it’s extremely important to watch where your meet/fish comes from and don’t always go for the cheapest offer  – but restrict oneself everyday doesn’t seem like a good solution to me, neither!:) So for this tuna steak I went to Globus Delicatessa – paradise and heaven for all the food lovers out there:).

Recipe (for 2)

Tuna Steak

  • Tuna Steak(s) – depending on how hungry you are: we made one of about 250 gramm for 2 persons.
  • 3 tbsp of soysauce
  • fresh ginger as much as you like
  • 1 glove of garlic
  • 2 tbsp of sesame oil (or any other oil you like)
  • sesame seeds


  • 150 gramm mushrooms
  • 4-5 broccoli florets
  • 3 thin sliceds carrots for the noodle mix and more if you want some carrots as a second side dish
  • 100 gramm freezed pees
  • 1 leek
  • 100 ml veggie stock
  • sesame seeds to top
  • Edamama Pasta – as much as you like, depending on how hungry you are


Tuna Steak

  • 1. Mix the soy sauce, grated ginger (you can use a cheese grater), crushed garlic and the oil in a bowl
  • 2. Place the tuna steak in it and wipe it, so that both sides are marinated
  • 3. Keep the tuna on the side and make your side dishes. When they are done, continue with the tuna
  • 4. Cover one side with sesame seeds
  • 5. Heat a pan with a little bit of oil in it (you don’t need to much as the tuna is already marinated)
  • 6. Place the tuna, the sesame seed side downwars,  in the pan and sear it for one minute each side on high temperature. Before you flip the steak, sprinkle the other side of the steak with sesame seeds
  • 7. When both sides are browned, keep the tuna for another 30 s – 1 minute in the pan on low temperature (otherwise you might have the problem that the steak is still cold in the inside)
  • Cut the tuna into stripes
  • If you do not like the steak when it’s still read in the inside, fry longer;)


  • 1. Cut the mushroos
  • 2. Cut the broccoli
  • 3. Cut the leek
  • 4. Slice the carrots with a carrot peeler if you do not have a machine like we have
  • 5. Take the pees out of the freezer
  • 6. Heat a pan (skillet) with some oil
  • 7. In another pan put on some water for the edamame pasta
  • 8. When the pan is heated, add mushrooms and after a minute broccoli, leek, carrots. Add the veggie stock and let it simmer.
  • 9. When the water boils, put in some salt and the edamame pasta – let it cook for about 6-7 min
  • 10. When the pasta is finished, add it to the veggies + mix in the pees.
  • 11. Let it simmer in the skillet for another 3-4 min
  • 12. Before you serve – use the rest of the sesame-soy dressing from the tuna steak to give the pasta/veggie mix some more flavour
  • Btw: This „pasta“ is 100 % made out of beens – I absolutely loooove them. Another option is soba noodles or just regular pasta 🙂
