Fruity Tuna Steaks
Curry powder, orange juice, and apricot jam add great flavor to tender tuna steaks. Because the steaks are simmered in the sauce, they pick up more flavor.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 teaspoons curry powder
- ⅓ cup frozen orange juice concentrate
- 2 tablespoons water
- ¼ cup apricot jam
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 4 6-ounce tuna steaks
In heavy skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Sprinkle curry powder over onions; cook and stir for 2 to 3 minutes longer, until onions are crisp-tender.
Add orange juice concentrate and water to skillet along with apricot jam and salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and add tuna. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes per inch of thickness, turning tuna once during cooking time, until fish flakes when tested with fork. You can serve tuna medium-rare if you'd like.
Place tuna on serving plate. If necessary, reduce sauce by turning heat to high and simmering until thickened, 3 to 4 minutes. Pour sauce over tuna and serve.
