GRILLED CITRUS TUNA STEAK WITH AVOCADO AND SPINACH


 GRILLED CITRUS TUNA STEAK WITH AVOCADO AND SPINACH







Dinner was so good tonight, dinner seemed straight out of a restaurant. Five stars. So good.

 

Ingredients:

  • 3 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • juice of 1 lime, plus the zest
  • 1 tsp freshly minced ginger
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1/2 avocado, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbs. soy sauce
  • 4 cups spinach
  • 1 tuna steak
  • 1 tsp sugar

 

Instructions:

  1. Season both sides of the tuna with salt and pepper.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together 2 Tbs. oil, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, zest and sugar. Add the fish and marinate for at least 2 hours in the fridge.
  3. In a small skillet heat the last Tbs of oil. Add the spinach and wilt slightly. Toss in a teeny pinch of salt and pepper. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Remove the fish from the marinade and grill (or sear) for 2 minutes on each side. Keep it rare in the center.
  5. Pour the remaining marinade into a small saucepan and reduce until it becomes thick, 2 minutes.
  6. Top the wilted spinach with the grilled fish, followed by the sliced avocado and a nice drizzle of the reduction. Enjoy your dinner!
