Trying Tuna Steak.

MintTeaMascara profile image

Off the back of watching the Better Brain Health documentary, I wanted to add more oily fish to my diet and decided to try some tuna steak.

I was expecting dry on the outside and raw on the inside but this was absolutely delicious!

Hello MintTeaMascara no I'm a coeliac and a vegetarian but I have eaten meat so can look at others meals objectively for what it is regardless of my needs and choices and you make some lovely dishes and thats a fact! 🌈😊

👍 Always good to be able to look at things objectively.


Tuna steak has been one of my favourites since my French friends introduced me to it (they did it on the barbecue)

Sounds delicious on a barbecue too.

Good job you had French friends to introduce you :)

Baby our ginger tabby is extremely envious of your tuna steak!

I'm hoping we keep our waters and fishing so UK fishermen can rebuild and we get more fish at a cheaper price, in late 60's used to go to Grimsby docks each week and get cheap bundles of fresh cod to take back for us and our friends to freeze. We need to learn to make better use of the less know fish, there must be plenty of ways to cook things like herring which the EU countries steal from our waters, more fish would be good for British health, over 20 years ago had a wholesaler friend I did IT jobs for and got paid with large boxes of shark, tuna and swordfish steaks, they were lovely but expensive to buy, also got big boxes of frozen big thick coley great microwaved in a tomato sauce.

Things have definitely changed. It's good to get responsibly sourced, wild and sustainable fish if we can.

Hello I agree thank you for sharing..

One supermarket many moons ago wanted to ask have these fish used to have to get frozen..

These fish all available used to be not now..

Some fresh ..






Black bream


Trout was reasonably cheap now excessive prices..

Mackerel can get frozen but not cheap.

Really sad in the country The UK has a massive amount of fish species we just eat Cod Haddock..

Italians, Spanish French all come and take our products for there own use..

I think we ate more fish healthy and losing weight crazy UK madness sky high prices...

I eat tins of Tuna Mackerel and Salmon most costly tins ever so do buy unless have to..

I found also most of our fish is caught and then exported to other countries mentioned..

Why ???

Would you be kind enough to post a link to the documentary?
