Miso Tuna Steaks

Tuna is one of the types of fish that is a must have for a healthy diet. Japanese cuisine is one of the most beneficial healthwise in the world, and tuna is a staple food in their diet.

However, tuna can be a tad on the bland side and so has not always been top of my shopping list. However, the miso glaze of this Japanese recipe amazingly lifts this dish to another dimension, with the combination of the salty and sweet sauce complementing the fish perfectly. The steamed green pak choi and the noodles make up a light, but nutritional meal. Low in fat but high in protein - it is a complete winner!!

An added bonus is there are few ingredients to prepare, and it is incredibly fast to make. Of course, at £3.48 for two adult servings, it once again proves that extremely healthy, but exciting food can be prepared on a tight budget.
