Early June was the start of my summer break so off I was to Cortland to meet B, my honey :-D.  I got really excited to cook for him.  According to a recent medical test he had, his cholesterol was pretty high, so we shopped for many veggies, fruits and fish to help him lower it down.

B slicing some veggies for us

We bought some frozen tuna steaks from Cortland Seafood, which I thought was a pretty interesting shop. Besides buying seafood, you can order ready made food from their menu.


Ingredients:

1 large tuna steak
olive oil
salt and pepper
string beans
broccoli
lettuce
Japanese mayonnaise
Kikkoman soy sauce

Rub salt and pepper on the tuna steak and leave for 15 minutes. Pour some olive oil on a thick pan and crank up the temperature on your stove burner to high for 3 to 5 minutes. When the pan is very hot, place the tuna steak for 45 seconds, then flip it, and place for 45 seconds more.

Blanche the broccoli and string beans by boiling water and placing both vegetables for two minutes.

Plate the greens and tuna steak. If you’d like to add taste to your salad, spread some Japanese mayonnaise on your tuna steak and sprinkle some Kikkoman sauce.
