I found two yellow fin tuna steaks in the freezer and 1 small tin of tuna. The Ankle Biters have not been worthy of yellow fin steaks today. So I had yet another delve into Into the Vietnamese Kitchen and found this lovely recipe for pan seared tuna. I served it on top of steamed rice with steamed green beans. The kids got tinned tuna stirred through their rice beans. That’ll teach them to sass their Mother! Lovely light meal leading up to Christmas gorging, very quick and easy too, just exceeds a 10 minute meal as the rice takes 15 minutes.
