Recipe: Tuna Steak with Tangy Mango Sauce

I don't really eat that many types of fish. I tend to  stick to my favorite which is salmon. I Recently decided it was a good time to step out of my comfort zone and try something different. So I bought some tuna steak and I am happy that I did!  I have had it in restaurants before but I had never actually prepared it at home.

I've heard it said that once you try tuna steak you will not be able to to eat tuna from a can ever again. The quality difference is huge of course but I don't know that it will change anything with my decision to have a tuna sandwich with pickles for lunch or not :)

Every recipe I looked at on the Internet and in my pile of cookbooks showed a pretty similar way of preparing tuna steak so went with that hoping to get the best out of the fish. Did I mention that it is not inexpensive? They cost quite a bit more then salmon does but I think that once in a while I will prepare tuna steak again for dinner or for a Shabbos meal because it was different and tasty and really filling!

Here is the recipe:
Tuna Steak with Tangy Mango Sauce
for two large pieces of tuna steak or more

I like marinating all fish because it helps take away that fishy taste. I've done that with many other fish preparation. For this one I skipped that step if you would like you can definitely do so. Orange Juice can be used I just had orangeade in the house for my son.


2 Large  Pieces or More of Tuna Steak
1 Mango
1/3 Cup Minute Maid Orangeade Juice
3 Tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar
2 Tablespoons Sugar (Optional)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Garlic Powder to taste
Olive Oil for Searing

1. If you don't want to or don't have time to marinate then start by taking the piece of raw tuna steak very carefully and rinse it, then pat it dry.

2. Place the tuna steak pieces in a non stick frying pan one at a time with a little olive oil. Sprinkle the steak on both sides with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Put the flame up to medium and let it sear on each side for 3 minutes. Do not move it around just let it lay for 3 whole minutes.

3. Once it has a nice sear take it out of the pan and lay it to the side on a plate or dish of choice.
4. Then prepare the mango sauce- Take the peel off the mango with a peeler or knife. Then chop off all of the fruit from the sides of the pit. Throw out the pit. Take the pieces of mango and place them in a food processor with the blade piece or in a blender. Add the orangeade juice, red wine vinegar and sugar and blend to a sauce consistency.

5. Put the sauce to the side in a container until ready to serve.

5. Serve tuna cold or warm topped with the prepared mango sauce also cold or warm depending on preference.
