As I’m not particularly fond of tuna, but realise it is important to take in during the hCG Diet, I found this recipe which I thoroughly enjoy. I’ve adapted it many different ways using various veg, and it is always tasty and delicious, so do play around with it.
4 250gm Tuna Steaks/Filets
2 Tablespoons coconut oil
2 Tablespoons finely minced/chopped onion
2 sticks of celery, finely sliced
1 small tomato, skinned & roughly chopped
1/2 teaspoon thyme
12 Tablespoons dry white wine (Leave this out for phase 2 and adapt by using Unsweetened orange juice – I find this a good alternative for this specific recipe)
Salt and pepper
Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil and gently fry the onions and celery until soft. Stir in tomatoes and thyme and cook for about 5 minutes to soften tomatoes. Place in base of shallow dish. Heat remaining oil and quickly fry the tuna steaks to brown on each side. Place tuna steaks on top of vegetables, season; then pour over white wine. Cover. Bake at 160°C for 40-50 minutes until fish is tender.
