Seared Tuna in Thai-Style Curry Sauce

with Jade Rice & Carrot-Mango Salad

Cooking time

30 minutes




810 /serving

This tropical, Thai-inspired tuna dish is stunning enough to grace any restaurant table, yet easy to make at home. You’ll sear your tuna until it gets a nice outer crust while keeping its beautiful ruby-pink tenderness in the middle. You’ll then lay it on a bed of pastel-green jade rice (it gets its tint from bamboo juice), and drizzle it with a fragrant coconut and ginger curry sauce. Give the dish that professional cheffy flourish with a sprinkling of fresh cilantro, and serve a sweet and crunchy carrot-mango salad on the side.

Cook the rice
In a medium pot, combine the rice, 1 ½ cups water (double for 4 portions) and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 9 to 10 minutes, until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff the cooked rice with a fork and set aside in a warm spot.

Mise en place
While the rice cooks, peel and thinly slice the carrots into rounds. Zest and juice the lime. Peel, halve and mince the shallot. Mince the garlic. Peel and mince the ginger. Peel and small-dice the mango. Pick the cilantro leaves off the stems, discarding the stems; finely chop the leaves.

Make the curry sauce
In a large, high-sided pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the shallot, garlic and ginger. Sauté, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until fragrant. Add as much curry paste as you’d like. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until fragrant. Add the coconut milk, as much lime zest as you’d like and ½ cup water (double for 4 portions); season with S&P. Reduce the heat and simmer for 4 minutes (be careful not to boil, as the coconut milk may separate). Add up to ½ the lime juice (to taste).

Cook the tuna
While the curry simmers, in a medium pan (non-stick if possible), heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the tuna steaks* dry with paper towel; season with the spice blend and S&P. Add to the pan and cook, 1 to 2 minutes per side for medium-rare, or until cooked as desired. Transfer to a cutting board. Thinly slice the tuna against the grain.
