Let me start by saying, this is not your dad’s tuna fish sandwich…this is kicked up a few notches! The entire meal was made in the NuWave oven. It’s fast, easy, and keeps food moist and delicious. So let’s delve into how to make this incredible weekender lunch: The Tuna Sandwich with baby broccoli fries!
It’s more an effort of assembly, not so much cooking, but never the less the end result will seem like you expended both time and culinary skills! First, pat your defrosted or fresh tuna steaks dry. Place them on tinfoil on the high rack of the NuWave. Sprinkle with ground ginger and garlic powder and drizzle 1 tsp of soy sauce on each steak. Cook on high heat for 7-8 minutes for a warm pink center.
While the tuna is cooking, pull out your Ezekiel bread and prep the sandwich accoutrements. Thinly slice red onion, tomatoes and an avocado. When the tuna finishes, place the bread and baby broccoli, sprinkled lightly with sea salt, in the NuWave for a quick toasting. The bread should be done in 5 minutes on high and the broccoli will need an additional 5 minutes. When you pull the bread out, assemble as follows. Place the thin slices of avocado on the bread, top with red onion. Add slices or the whole tuna steak (make sure you are measuring your tuna for appropriate portion). The Tuna Sandwich (open face) is ready for a few drizzles of hot sauce and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. Top with tomato slices and serve with the baby broccoli fries.
This lunch takes less than 20 minutes to put together, tastes seriously gourmet, and is Meal Plan Approved!
