Tuna with Coriander Mayonnaise

Tuna with Coriander Mayonnaise

A rule of thumb for cooking fish is to cook it about 8 to 10 minutes per inch thickness of fish. If you like such fish as tuna and salmon more on the rare side, decrease that time by a minute or two.

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 steak and about 1 tablespoon mayonnaise mixture)


  • 2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 4 teaspoons fat-free milk
  • 1 tablespoon plain fat-free yogurt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup coriander seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 none (6-ounce) tuna steaks (about 3/4 inch thick)
  • none Cooking spray


1. Combine first 5 ingredients. Chill. Place seeds in a heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; seal. Crush seeds with a rolling pin. Sprinkle salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper over steaks; press crushed coriander onto both sides of steaks.

2. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; place over medium-high heat until hot. Add steaks; cook 4 minutes on each side until medium-rare or to desired degree of doneness. Serve fish with mayonnaise mixture.
