Tuna Steak

This is my first try to cook tuna fish. I decided to try tuna as it looks fresh and price is a bit cheaper than the some of the big fishes that I used to buy.  Since I’m not so used to cooking this kind of fish I just did some simple steps to cook it and I  called the finished dish as Tuna Steak. Hurray! It’s meaty and turned out to be delectable, try this recipe…with my cooking instincts and good taste I bet you’ll like it too!









  • 1 medium size fresh tuna fish or half size of a big tuna (about 1 kg.)
  • 4 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 cloves garlic; crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup cooking oil (for frying and sauteing)
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 pc. lemon; juiced
  • 1 pc. large onion; sliced into rings
  • a pinch of msg to taste (optional)

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Cut the fish into slices and boiled slightly in vinegar, garlic, pepper and salt to remove the bad odor or ‘lansa’.
  2. Fry the slices after removing it in the vinegar boiled mixture.
  3. Sautee garlic, add soy sauce, msg and drops of lemon to give a lemony aroma and taste. Add fried tuna and simmer for at least 2 minutes.
  4. Add onion slices and serve hot with steamed rice.
