Tuna Steaks with Peach-Citrus Relish Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy
Low carb recipe for Tuna Steaks with Peach-Citrus Relish which belongs to the Fish and Seafood recipe category.
- 2 pounds (910 g) tuna steaks
- 1 ripe peach
- 1 tablespoon (15 ml) lime juice
- teaspoon orange extract
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 1 tablespoon (1.5 g) Splenda
- tablespoon soy sauce
- Olive oil
First peel the peach, cut it in half, remove the stone, and dice it small.
Stir in the lime juice, orange extract, garlic, Splenda, and soy sauce.
Set this aside ?indeed, you can do this a few hours in advance if you like and refrigerate the relish until dinnertime.
If you do this, get the relish out of the fridge before you get ready to grill the fish?it will have more flavor at room temperature.
When it's time to cook, either light a charcoal fire and let the coals burn down till they're ash-covered or set your gas grill to medium.
Cut the tuna steaks into serving portions and rub each one lightly with olive oil.
Make sure your grill is well oiled and grill the tuna no more than 3 to 5 minutes per side?it should still be red in the middle.
(I learned this the hard way.
Cook a tuna steak until it's pink all the way through, and it will be dry and tough.
) Divide the relish between the portions and serve.
Each serving will have 4 grams of carbohydrate and 1 gram of fiber, for a usable carb count of 3 grams; and 53 grams protein.
