Tuna Kebabs | Cook This, Not That

I’ve never made Tuna this way, but I’ve had a couple of versions of chicken satay that tastes like this dish. I’m still struggling to stay meat free, but I def had a Double Cheeseburger on Sunday. I couldn’t help myself. I came home only to drown myself in Broccoli and Spinach.

Staying Meat free will only work if I get up and cook something that’s a little more exciting than plain ole Lemon Tilapia. I’ve been reading up on tilapia and I’ve decided that unless it’s wild caught I won’t be eating the farm raised version. I found these wild caught tuna medallions that I cut into chunks from another recipe from Eat This, Not That.  If you’re not convinced to buy this book the recipe is below.  It’s topped with a coconut milk based peanut sauce that reminds me of the sauce they give you at Japanese Steakhouses.  I love that sauce, but who knows what’s in it. This sauce, I know what is in there. I also used Aminos again instead of Soy sauce and it was amazing. I ended up making these for lunch for work, I ended up eating it all before I could pack it up for lunch, which wasn’t really productive.

Tuna Kebabs

 

1/2 Tbsp peanut or vegetable oil
1 Tbsp minced fresh ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
2 Tbsp peanut butter
1 cup light coconut milk
1/2 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce (I used Braggs Liquid Aminos) 
Juice of 1 lime
1 tsp sriracha or other hot sauce
1 lb ahi tuna, cut into 8 long pieces

How to Make It:
*Soak 8 wooden skewers in cold water for at least 20 minutes.

*Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook the ginger and garlic until lightly toasted, about 1 minute. Add the peanut butter, coconut milk, and soy sauce. Simmer on low heat for 10 minutes. Add the lime juice and sriracha and remove from the heat.

*Heat a grill or stovetop grill pan until hot. Thread each piece of tuna onto a skewer and brush all over with the sauce. Cook for 2 minutes per side, until charred on the outside but still pink in the center. Serve the skewers with the remaining sauce. (Source)
