Tuna steak with coodle salad and a tahini dressing

This dish is right up the Paleo diet’s alley. You might well ask what the feck is a coodle? Well the answer is.. it’s a cucumber noodle. Turning cucumber into stringy noodles adds texture and substance to this salad. It’s a really winning combo that is pretty slimming and takes minutes to make. I am determined this year not to be a heffer by Christmas and I think this recipe might be one I return to again and again on my quest not to melt to fat over the winter.

For one person you need:

  • tuna steak
  • splash of sesame oil
  • half a cucumber
  • half a mango
  • 2 spring onions
  • quarter of an avocado
  • chilli
  • 1 tbsp of tahini
  • splash of soy sauce
  • 1 garlic glove
  • tsp of grated ginger
  • 2 tbsp of water

First thing to do is turn your cucumber into coodles by passing it through a spiraliser.

Get your griddle pan on and heat it up so its really hot before adding a splash of sesame oil and then the tuna steaks. Cook on this high heat for about 2 and a half minutes on each side (if you like it a bit pink in the middle and depending on the size.)

In a separate pan combine all the ingredients for the dressing and bring to a boil so that it all comes together and you have the desired consistency.
