Japanese Style Tuna with Wok Fried Noodles

One of my quickest meals from last week is this tuna dish. It took me about 15 mins to make and cook. I put the tuna into marinade before I went to work in the morning and it was really tasty. The tuna had a lovely flavour which was taken up by the noodles and veg as well. All in all another simple but tasty dish.
I'm going to add this to Presto Pasta Nights, this week hosted by Mansi of Fun and Food Cafe. Check out her blog on Friday for the round up.

Japanese Style Tuna with Wok Fried Noodles
(Serves 2)

1 teaspoon miso paste
3 tablespoons Japanese soy sauce
1 tablespoon mirin
2 teaspoons finely grated fresh ginger
1 teaspoon sesame oil
180g tuna steaks
150g dried soba noodles
1 tablespoon canola oil
couple of handfuls grated carrot
1 small tin sliced bamboo shoots
1 spring onions, thinly sliced

Put the miso, soy sauce, mirin, ginger and sesame oil in a bowl and stir to combine

Marinate the tuna fillets in the mixture, in the refrigerator, for about an hour.

Cook the soba noodles in a pot of boiling water for 5 minutes, rinse under cold water, drain and set aside.

Heat a grill pan over a high heat, then add the marinated tuna steaks, reserving the marinade. Cook for 3 minutes on each side.

While the tuna is cooking, heat a wok over a high heat. Add the oil and stir-fry the carrot and bamboo shoots for 2 minutes. Add the noodles and spring onions and stir well to combine. Add the reserved marinade, bring to the boil and stir.
Serve the noodle-vegetable stir-fry with the grilled tuna on top.


  1. Thanks for sharing your recipe with PPN! it looks great:)

  2. I love it when I do a few minutes of work either in the morning or the night before and magically cook dinner in the wink of an eye.
