We love tuna steaks at our house. It's probably the hubs favorite fish actually.
Sometimes we'll grill it up asian style with some sesame noodles. Other times I make Tuna Salad Nicoise.
I base our recipe for Nicoise off of a salad I ate probably 5 years ago at Go Fish! in Mystic, CT.
It was a light, delicious salad and I never forgot it. That salad was probably my first foray in to replicating a recipe at home. Hmmm maybe I should have started blogging back then!
If you like a good rare to medium rare tuna steak and a good nicoise, you'll love this salad. You can grill the fish or griddle it or pan fry it, whatever is easiest for you.
Go Fish! Tuna Salad Nicoise At Home
1 tuna steak per salad
9-12 fresh greenbeans per salad
1 hard boiled egg per salad
3-4 small boiled sliced potatoes per salad.
Earlier in the day boil your potatoes and eggs in a pot. About 5-6 minutes before the eggs are done, add your cleaned, trimmed beans - drain the pot and let everything reset.
Place your sald greens in a salad bowl or plate. season with a touch of salt and pepper.
Start your tuna steak and cook to your liking.
Slice your potatoes, eggs and place around the lettuce. Place green beans around the salad. Drizzle all items with olive oil and a touch of either lemon juice or balsamic vinegar. Top your salad with your tuna steak sliced on the diagonal.
