Tuna Steaks With Mango Basil Sauce

The most crucial piece of this amazing mango basil sauce is….you guessed it…the mangoes! They have to be ripe. I noticed some delightful mangoes in Walmart market the other day and stopped by to give them a test. They were just a little soft under the skin and I could smell their sweet, tropical fragrance when I put them to my nose. Bingo! Nothing is as good as a perfectly ripe mango. I learned this one day on an agricultural field station in Hawai`i. I came home with over 100 pounds of fresh mangoes! It was one of the greatest days of my life.

I have been loosely following (occasional glasses of red wine are necessary for sanity, right?) an anti-inflammatory diet the past few weeks. Thankfully, most of the foods I really love fit into this category. I found some really fresh looking tuna steaks in Walmart and thought I would give them a try.

I used my tried and true blackening spice recipe and patted some generously on both sides of this tuna. For cooking, I used coconut oil instead of butter and it worked so well. I love that subtle flavor of coconut!

The basil in my garden has started producing so I just snatched a handful of leaves off a plant for this recipe.

If fresh mango is not available, frozen mangoes would also work for this sauce. The best part of this recipe is that it’s soooo easy. The sauce only has five ingredients!

PREP TIME: 10 MINUTES      COOK TIME: 5 MINUTES      SERVINGS: 4

INGREDIENTS

For the sauce:

  • 2 ripe mangoes, peeled and cut into slices
  • juice and zest of one lime
  • one handful of fresh basil leaves
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp sea salt

For the fish:

  • 4 tuna steaks
  • 1 tbsp. paprika
  • 1 tbsp. cumin
  • 1 tbsp. chipotle pepper powder (or chili powder)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 3 tbsp. coconut oil

DIRECTIONS

  1. Place all sauce ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth. Set aside.
  2. For the fish, mix together all the spices in a small bowl. Sprinkle the mixture on both sides of the tuna steaks until they are uniformly covered. Save your leftover blackening spices. They are delicious!
  3. Heat coconut oil in a large pan on medium high heat. Add tuna and sear it about 2-3 minutes on each side, leaving a thick portion of the middle of the steaks pink. Remove from heat.
  4. Place steaks on a plate and drizzle the magic sauce on top. Enjoy!
