What type of tuna should you use in this recipe?
If you can get fresh tuna steaks at your local supermarket or fish monger, try and opt for steaks that are about an inch thick and weigh roughly six ounces.
If not, frozen steaks work just as well - just pop them into the fridge to defrost in the morning before you head out to work.
When considering which type of tuna to buy, you can opt for Yellowfin. It is easy to find and is less expensive than Bluefin - but it's just as nice!
This recipe also works well with salmon if you prefer it over tuna steaks. Rather than placing the salmon onto the baking pan, you can create little foil pouches in which to cook the salmon instead. This method of cooking is known as en papillote. The liquid helps to create steam within the foil which helps to cook the fish. It will also work well with the tuna if you would like to give it a try!
We love to serve this with asparagus, but if you are not a fan, you can substitute the asparagus for green beans. For a healthier alternative when cooking the asparagus, hold the parmesan and squeeze over some lemon juice instead.
