Healthy Tuna Loin Appetizers with FLAVOR

As you all know, the Hunting Chef is on a diet and exercising.  I entered a cleanse regiment about 4 days ago, this means NO salt, sugar, processed fats (butter, mayo, etc.) caffeine, or any booze, carbs, or milk products.

Lets review what I love the most about living.

  1. My family
  2. Outdoors
  3. Eating salt, carbs, cheese, booze, butter, olive oil, red meats, and more cheese.

So after eating bland food for four days I decided to do something about it.  This one has a lot of flavor and is incredible considering it is healthy.

  • Tuna Loin (you can have the butcher cut you some in 1/4 cuts)
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • Wasabi
  • 1/2 chopped avocado
  • 1/2 chopped tomato
  • olive oil spray
  • Fake salt of your choice if you choose, but not really needed.
I take an Albacaore Tuna loin from the sea from last year.

Basically I just cut 1/4 medallions. Then I take the best fake ingredients that I could find that sort of taste like salt.

 

Mrs. Dash spicy pepper and Lemon pepper and olive oil spray

I spray and dash the spicy pepper on one side, then repeat the same with the lemon pepper.  I am just trying to make some flavor.  It is hard to season with out salt….trust me.  But the biggest trick is right here.

A little olive oil on a hot pan carmelize your sliced garlic.

Take your sliced garlic, add a little real olive oil, and cook on high heat until brown then remove. Add the Tuna to the same pan.

Cook on high heat, about 2-3 minutes each side.

This is the Wasabi I used, no salt!!!

You should already have cut avocado and tomato and now your carmelized garlic, because it goes pretty quick.

Add a squirt of Wasabi to the Tuna medallions.

A nice little line straight across.  If you have people that may not like wasabi you can put a little dash.

Then you want to take the major flavor factor, and put layer the medallion.

Put about 3-4 on each piece.

At this point you could add a little low sodium soy sauce.  Just a drop on each piece.  This is an option.

Layer the tomato and the avocado and serve.

The carmelized garlic and wasabi takes this dish out of the park.

This is a refreshing light dish, that packs a punch of flavor.  Do not worry folks, I will get back to blogging about the good stuff soon enough.

I am burning that dish up and already hungry.
