Sesame Tuna with Edamame and Soba

    This is a tasty recipe. Added shredded carrot to salad. Taste was fresh with a kick (reduce the sweet chili sauce if heat is an issue). Served with the Napa Cabbage Slaw. Tips: Do not over cook the soba. I cooked the noodles 2:50 min and rinsed then in cold water, then drained well. The dressing absorbs into the noodles and softens them the rest of the way. And don't overcook the tuna. It needs to be a bit pink... This will be enjoyed much this summer...

    Great taste and balance. I did not make the slaw with it and it still seemed like a complete meal. Although, I will say it fed only me and my husband. Maybe serving the slaw with it you could stretch it to 4 people.

    This is really good. Huge hit with my husband. Seems really fancy but easy to make, just don't cook the fish long. The rarer the better. I serve this with a side of snow peas instead of the slaw.

    Made all three dishes, tuna, noodle dish and cabbage salad and all three were excellent. Two things though, cooking time is laughably off. All the mixing and slicing and dicing, takes much longer and uses a lot of dishes. Also, I doubled everything and four of us had the minimum of leftovers. Also used udon instead of soba and an easy substitute.

    Fast, easy to make and delicious! I made some extra sauce (from soba noodle part) and put a little over the tuna. Nice addition! Will definately make again

    You can use Annie Chun's Asian Noodles (Maifun Brown Rice Noodles, for example)--they're gluten free. On the website, you can find which stores they are sold in:

    5-stars for the side dishes alone with this recipe! I had grand plans to make the tuna as well, but alas the selection at the market was a bit dissapointing when I went to buy the fish - so I served the soba salad & napa slaw along side halibut instead. I rarely make recipes exactly as written, but followed both salad recipes to the "T" and they were fantastic. Love all the flavors and my family raved! These are my new go-to Asian-style side dishes from now on!!!
