Teriyaki sauce Tuna


This recipe is really easy to make, really yummy and healthy. It can also be paired with rice, potato mash or something else instead of the salad, but the truth is that with the salad you get the perfect combination. 

In the recipe says to cook the tuna for 5 min. each side, bacause we like it to be 3/4 cooked, but if you like it well-done then cook it for about 6-7 min.



-For the tuna:

  • 4 tuna medallions
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 C teriyaki sauce  
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce 
  • 1/2 tsp honey 
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil 
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped 

-For the salad:

  • 1 lettuce, your preference (we use italian lettuce) 
  • 8 fresh figs
  • 2 green apples 
  • 1 tomato
  • 1/2 C caramelized pecans 
  • Soft goat cheese 


-For the tuna:

  1. Season with salt and pepper the tuna medallions.
  2. Mix the teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, and garlic together. 
  3. Marinate the medallions in the sauce for 30 min. 
  4. In a pan to medium-high heat with some oil, cook the medallions for 5 min. each side. 
  5. Take them out of the heat and now pour the marinate sauce on the same pan, turn the heat up and stir. Some bubbles will appear, keep beating for about 3 min.
  6. Serve each medallion with sauce poured on top and some salad on the side.

-For the salad:

  1. Wash, dry and then chop the lettuce.
  2. Likewise, chop the figs, the apples and the tomato.
  3. Place the lettuce along with the figs, the apples and the tomato in a plate and top it off with the caramelized pecans and some goat cheese.
