Seared Ancho Crusted Tuna Steak with Chile Lemongrass Soyu and Diced Mango

© 2012 REMCooks.com

Back to dinner posts we go. This is a beautiful and tasty dinner packing a whole lot of flavor. You get the earthy flavor from the ancho crust with the salty, spicy tangy sweetness of the soyu sauce and the sweet, cool smoothness of the mango with the floral notes of the cilantro. This meal has it all and then some. It’s easy and quick. From start to finish the meal takes less than 30 minutes. The longest cooking time came from the roasted asparagus and the rice. Another perfect weeknight meal. When you’re in a rush and want something elegant yet simple, give this dish a try!
