Crispy... Tuna... Steaks
in... Citrus... Sauce

Everyone knows fish is a good choice for heart-healthy eating...it's lower in saturated fat than meat and poultry. Their beefy texture makes tuna steaks a favorite with affirmed meat eaters. The seasonal cornmeal seals in its juicy flavor. Who could resist! lol

338 calories; serves 4
prep time: 15 minutes; cook time: 9 minutes


2 large oranges
1 1/2 c orange juice
2 Tbs dry white wine (optional)
2 Tbs cornstarch
2 Tbs chopped fresh cilantro
2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
4 tuna steaks (1/2 inch thick, 6 ounces ea)
4 tsp olive oil


Peel and section oranges, eliminating seeds. Whisk orange juice, wine (if using), and cornstarch in small saucepan until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and cook, stirring, until sauce boils and thickens, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in orange sections. Keep warm.

Mix cilantro, cornmeal, salt, and pepper in pie plate. Coat both sides of tuna steaks with cornmeal mixture, pressing firmly so crust mixture adheres.

Heat 2 tsp oil in large skillet over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Sear tuna until done to taste, 2 to 3 minutes on each side for medium-rare. Add remaining oil just before turning fish. Serve with the sauce.

Tip: When purchasing tuna, I use yellowfin. It's a good choice for this recipe because it holds its shape and is flavorful. I also make this recipe with salmon.

Health hint: Tuna is a member of the mackerel family. It is high in heart-protecting omega-3 acids (canned albacore tuna has the highest levels) Omega-3s are special fats that help prevent artery disease. Like most fish, tuna is especially rich in B vitamins, including niacin, thiamin, and vitamin B6.

Blogger would not let me on my blog or anyone else's blog today! he he! In fact, blogger said I was not authorized to even visit my blog! lol Too Funny! So, in the midst of it all, I upgraded to the new version of Firefox and finally tonight it is working! The new Firefox has it's own built in spell check! woohoo! I think I like it!

Hope you all enjoy this tasty and healthy little number as much as we do. lol I will be in and out of the Dental office this week while they fix me up and make me look pretty. he he! I am so out of my comfort zone whenever I have to go to the Dentist so I tend to joke and tease with them and today, I just had them all in stitches, my way of dealing with it! So, it's just the two of us hoping you remember to keep it lite, and eat healthy!

Hello Pamela ~~ Good idea the healthy recipes. Loved the gender of our computers, have never thought of that
I am sure Blogger is male as he is so
uncooperative at times. Thanks for your visit, we all liked the Robin Hood joke. I usually type in to Word
then copy and paste, but haven't been able to do that for awhile. So I am typing directly into Blogger and that seems to work. Take care, Love, Merle.

Recipe looks good. I have never cooked tuna steaks before. I may have to give it a try.

I switched to the new firefox. I don't know yet if I like it or not.\

Hi Pamela ~~ Thanks for your visit. I
was sorry not to get to the funeral, but there were going to be others there to comfort Sandra's sister which
was my main concern.
Good luck at the dentist Pamela,better
not take hubby in case he says, "No novacaine." Take care, my friend,
Love, Merle.

Healthy recipes are always a good thing, esp. in Jan after the heavy meals of the holiday season!
Blogger was being so beasty yesterday.
I was gone much of the day, and then when I had time it said "NO NO"
I have Firefox and I'll check for the upgrade!

Thanks for sharing this recipe. We really enjoy fish at our house, but I don't make it often enough! Have to give this one a shot!

I don't usually like tuna but fixed like that, I might enjoy it! lol I've copied the recipe down for my mom, she loves tuna! Good luck at the dentist!! Blogger sure was a pain yesterday, I couldn't get on my own blog either for a few hours. Today it seems to be working ok. I haven't switched to the new Blogger yet so I'm just holding my breath to see what happens next!! Hugs xox

I love fish! My family is not a huge fan...so I don't get to cook it very often. I usually always order it out when I have a chance.

Sounds good....I'm not big on fish, but hubby loves it. I might just have to give in and start fixing fish for the fam....especially with the bird flu and all....don't get me started.

Blogger was a beast yesterday!! I couldn't get around anywhere and I developed a twitch from not being able to blog. hee hee

I am on Firefox and I like it. I switched over from EI and my internet has been a lot smoother. I'm still trying to decide if I should switch to Beta Blogger. I just have trouble making changes, I guess.
