Now that I have my new recipe page up, I thought I would start sharing more of my simple, dinner-in-a-flash recipes. Most nights, it is a scavenger hunt in the fridge to find ingredients I am not allergic too, yet will still taste and blend well together. Because I must rotate my food as much as possible (usually every 3-4 days), it can be hard to come up with recipes to cook, due to literally running out of options. However, sometimes the right foods seem to all fall together on the same day. Today’s recipe just so happens to be one of those days, and I suppose it could also be called a “5 ingredients or less” kind of deal. Not only is it literally done in less than half a hour, but it is the perfect single-serving size, that can easily be adapted for more people.
- 1, 6-8 oz yellowfin tuna steak
- 3 tbsp Avocado oil
- Sea Salt
- 1 greenish-yellow plantain
- 1/3 cup of duck fat
- 1/4 cup cilantro
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar or juice of 1/2 a lime
- In a medium sized skillet, heat 1/3 cup duck fat over medium heat.
- Peel the plantain and slice into thin coin shaped disks.
- Line a plate with parchment paper or a paper towel and set aside.
- Place half of the sliced plantain in the sizzling oil and fry, flipping over onto the other side after 4-5 minutes of cooking, allowing each side to brown. *The thinner the slices, the more chip-like they become.
- Repeat this process with remaining plantain chips.
- Once done cooking, remove plantains from heat and place on the lined plate to soak up excess oil.
- Heat grill to medium-high heat.
- Pour avocado oil over tuna steak and rub all over.
- Sprinkle a generous pinch of salt over the top of the fish.
- Place on grill and cover, cooking for 3 minutes on each side. *For a well done (or as I say, dry) fillet, cook 4-5 minutes per side, depending on the thickness. My piece was 2 inches thick.
- In the same skillet used for the plantains, heat another 2 tablespoons of either duck fat.
- Add 1/4 chopped cilantro, along with 1 tbsp of vinegar or lime juice, and a generous pinch of salt.
- Pour sauce over grilled tuna steak and plantains and enjoy!
