Seared Cajun tuna steaks, super quick midweek meal, healthy tuna recipe, easy family dinner

Super simple seared Cajun tuna that’s great for weeknight cooking as it’s ready just so quickly! This mouthwatering tuna dish is fast becoming a favourite here. 

You can serve it up with whatever you fancy, for ease I like to throw it on top of a shop bought sweet and crunchy salad, maybe add a side oven fries or plain boiled rice. Healthy, nutritious and oh so yum!

How to serve seared Cajun tuna
  • For speed with a side of microwave rice – try the flavoured packs for added taste.
  • Slice and serve over a huge salad, drizzled with a garlic mayonnaise and squeeze of lemon.
  • When I make this for the kids, they like it separate from the salad… and with a side of oven fries and pot of salsa for dipping.
  • Try slicing the tuna steaks and serving with salad in toasted pitta breads or wrapped in warmed tortillas.
