My Tuna Steak Recipe with Vegetables I show you in this post.

The tuna is served in two variations, first naturally fried and second in a sesame crust.

You can choose one variant or conjure up both on the plate. The vegetables are Asian and taste delicious. 

This variant of tuna and vegetables is simply wonderful.

It is a dish to enjoy and therefore ideal for losing weight because it simply tastes good and does you good.

Here you will find Food Combining and Low Carb in one dish. The tuna fish is a great fish, I only buy fish with the seal. 

That means I look for a seal for sustainable fishing. In sustainable fishing, fishermen pay attention to the protection of stocks.

MSC.org is such a seal and you will find many fish products in Germany with this award.

Let yourself be invited to cook for yourself and conjure up a great fish dish for your loved ones …
