In a large flat dish mix together all the ingredients for marinade, place in tuna steak, cover and place in the fridge for 30 minutes (turn over half way through).
Prepare noodles as per packet instructions, once cooked blanch in cold water.
Heat oil in a wok; add onion, garlic and chilli - cook until soft.
Add the remainder of the vegetables; cook until there is a slight crunch but not completely soft.
Stir through noodles – leave on a very low heat whilst tuna cooks.
Heat pan, remove tuna from marinade and sear for 3-4 minutes on each side (cook for longer if you prefer the tuna cooked through completely).
Serve tuna on top on stir-fried noodles and vegetables, sprinkle with sesame seeds and raw spring onion and a wedge of fresh lime.
Hi Sasha, It's definitely a great post work out meal, high in protein, low in fat, packed with veg and a portion of carbs to replenish your glycogen stores depleted during exercise! I've eaten cold tuna cooked the night before but then one tuna steak would be adequate for one portion so might only be veg and noodles left over :) x
Sounds simple and good post-workout food too. I can imagine it would make great leftovers the next day.is day old tuna ok to eat?
Sounds delicious! WIll be giving this a go! :-)
