Seared Tuna Served On A Bed Of Noodles

If you have ten minutes to prepare a meal, then this Seared Tuna Served On A Bed Of Noodles recipe is perfect. The key with tuna is to make sure it is super fresh. You can freeze it if you want to or if you have more than you can eat in one meal. To freeze tuna all you need to do is portion it. Then cover in two layers of cling film and put it into your freezer. To defrost I would suggest doing so overnight in the fridge.

It is important when buying tuna that you know it has come from a reliable source. The fishing practices need to be sustainable. And locally caught fish is the best. In South Africa we get a few varieties of tuna. Some of it ends up as tinned fish. Eaten fresh, this is not the best example of tuna at all. Look out for dolphin friendly notations on the tins when you buy tinned fish. A lot of our tuna is sent away for export. It has to be in pristine condition as it is exported whole.
