tuna steak & noodle stir fry with blackbean sauce

This meal is one of my absolute favourites to have after a workout. The recipe is really simple to follow, it takes less than 30 minutes and it tastes amazing. It’s also good for those who usually tend to snack at night as the steaks are very filling.

  • Tuna Steaks
  • Mushrooms
  • Peppers
  • Egg Noodles
  • Blackbean Sauce

After you’ve put the oven on 180° you then need to season the steaks, wrap them in foil and place in a baking tin. They should then go in the oven for approx 20-30 mins but depending on the thickness of the steaks they can sometimes be done a lot earlier so it’s best to keep checking them.

You can add whatever veg you want but from experience these two go well with the sauce. Open your egg noodles and place in a cooking pan. Again, use whatever noodles you prefer but I always find that with a fish dish the egg based noodles taste the nicest.

When you think the tuna has around 5 minutes left to cook stir fry the veg and cook the noodles according to the packet. Once your veg is cooked then add the black bean sauce. You can either use the standard sauce or if you’re happy to stick with a healthy version then an organic, low-fat black bean sauce is also available in Tesco. If black bean isn’t available then hoison sauce also goes well with this meal.

When you’re happy that your steaks are cooked right through so that the fish is beginning to flake but still remains a pinkish colour in the middle you can then plate up your noodles, transfer your tuna from the oven and add your veg on the top.
