Serves: 4
Hands-on time: 10 minutes
Total time: 35 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 tsp olive oil, divided
  • 4 4-oz albacore tuna steaks
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt, divided
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper, divided
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1/2 lb carrots (about 5 small), peeled and sliced into matchsticks
  • 1 large fennel bulb, sliced (save fronds and stalks for another use)
  • 3/4 cup low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp raw honey
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Heat 1 tsp oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Sprinkle tuna with 1/8 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp pepper. Sear tuna in pan until lightly browned, about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes per side. Remove tuna from pan, place on plate and tent with foil to keep warm.
  2. Add remaining 1 tsp oil to pan with onion, carrots and fennel. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes, until vegetables soften. Lower heat to medium and mix in broth, garlic and remaining 1/8 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp pepper. Cover and cook for 10 more minutes.
  3. Stir honey, thyme and vinegar into vegetables. Place tuna steaks over top, cover and cook for another 5 to 7 minutes. Serve each tuna steak with 1 cup braised vegetables.
