Pre-heat your pan to medium-high heat. Salt & pepper and sprinkle sesame seed all over your “Tuna Steak.” Now sear your salmon on all sides so that it’s still raw through center. If your concerned about how to sear salmon go watch some videos on YouTube. Then set aside on a plate and with a sharp knife slice really thin pieces and then cube the slices into bite size pieces.

Fresh Tuna Steak

Sriracha Mayo

  • 1/3 Cup of Mayonnaise
  • 2-3 tbsp of Sriracha 

Mix in a bowl and add to a squirt bottle if you have one to get a thin drizzle across the top of each “Tuna Taco.”

Tortiallas

Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. I like to take the lid to my blender and place it in the center of each individual tortilla and press down while spinning it to cut the perfect size tortilla. Brush each side lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Place your tortilla folded over each single bar of the oven rack and place a pan on top to keep them from curling up. Allow to bake for 10 minutes and remove. You get a crunchy shell and it’s easy to layer in your taco ingredients. Now, add a spoonful of guacamole then add mango, seared tuna, cabbage, and drizzle on some sriracha mayo! TA-DA TUNA TACOS!

Seared Salmon w/ Cucumber Salad

“Seared Salmon w/ Cucumber Salad” puts a BIG SMILE on my face! I probably eat salmon 3-4 times a week (no joke) because it’s healthy and I just love it! The “Seared Salmon w/ Cucumber Salad” is simple to make with a quick sear of the salmon and the cucumber salad is light & refreshing. It’s just diced tomatoes, cucumber, and shredded onion with plain yogurt. Did you just feel your waist line shrink an inch? Because it will if you add this to your weekly meal menu. Let’s call it “Skinny Salmon Dish!” Ha!

Seared Salmon w/ Couscous & Cucumber Salad

 Ingredients

  • Salmon (buy however much you need w/ skin removed)
  • Couscous Pear Balls (make according to package)
  • 3-4 Cucumbers (cubed)
  • 2-3 Tomatoes (diced)
  • 1/2 Onion (shredded)
  • 2-4 tbsp of Plain Yogurt
  • Salt & Pepper to Taste

Boil your couscous according to the package. Salt & pepper your salmon pieces on each side. In a saute pan on medium-high heat add a splash of olive oil (so the fish doesn’t stick) and sear for 7-10 minutes on each side (more or less depending on thickness). Do not lift the salmon to peek unless of course you think its burning (thats how you get the perfect sear). Make your cucumber salad by adding your cucumbers, tomatoes, onion, and yogurt to a bowl mixing well. Then layer your plate by adding couscous and salmon topped with cucumber salad. It’s that EASY FOLKS!
