Seared Hoisin Soy Tuna Steak Pancakes

2 portions

Who doesn’t love Chinese pancakes? Here instead of using duck, we use tuna in a soy and hoisin marinade for a healthier and speedier take on a classic favourite. This dish is a perfect mid-week meal, an ideal supper for two which can be on the table in under 20 minutes.

NUTRITION NOTES - Tuna is the perfect firm-fleshed fish to cook on the BBQ, and the nutrition credentials of this dish are immediately elevated by selecting this ingredient. Tuna is packed full of protein and predominantly mono-unsaturated fatty acids – those that you would usually find in olive oil.  Omega-3 fatty acids are also present, which are known to be beneficial to heart health; they are also known to help maintain normal blood pressure.  We should all try and add more foods containing omega 3 fatty acids to our diets.


240g tuna steak (1 large or two small steaks)
6 Chinese pancakes
½  cucumber, finely sliced into sticks
3 spring onions
1 red chilli, finely sliced
1 tbsp toasted peanuts, roughly chopped
4 tbsp Lee Kum Kee Plum Sauce , for dipping (optional)

1 Place the soy sauce, sesame oil and hoisin sauce into a shallow bowl and add the tuna steak. Turn the tuna steak a few times to fully coat it.
2 Heat a griddle pan over medium-high heat and add the tuna steak, leaving any marinade behind in the bowl. Cook for around 2-3 minutes per side, depending on how you like it done. Brush the remaining glaze from the bowl onto the steak for the final minute of cooking time. Remove from the pan.
3 Meanwhile, heat the pancakes according to the pack instructions and place the cucumber, spring onions, chilli and peanuts into separate bowls. Slice the tuna steak into strips and place on a plate.
4 To serve, pile the pancakes with a few cucumber sticks, slices of tuna, spring onions, chilli and toasted peanuts. Dip into plum sauce, if desired.
