Tuna Steak ala Pobre

You may have noticed that we had posted several Fish ala pobre recipes lately.  That's because we find the dish to be so delicious that I can't stop experimenting on it using different kinds of fishes and different mix of ingredients for the sauce.  In fact, I always keep some marinated tuna and salmon in the refrigerator for the sole purpose of cooking them as fish ala pobre.  And one other thing, I will be posting the recipe of the classic bangus ala pobre later on (tomorrow may be)

As you can see, salmon ala pobre recipes had already been posted earlier and there are two cooking methods I had already employed, one is pan frying the fish and the other is baking.  My husband preferred the baked one because it was healthier.   

What makes this ala pobre dish delicious?  The cook who cooks it - that's me : The marinade which enhances the flavor of the fishes and which is also turned into the dish's savory sauce.  The Marinade provides the extra salty-sour flavor of the fishThe longer you marinade the fish the more flavor from the marinade it absorbs, the more delicious it becomes.  After which, the same marinade is transformed into the dish's  savory sauceInfused with lots of garlic and  those crunchy onions that goes with it, the dish is definitely addicting.


Ingredients :

Tuna fillet -  6 to 8 slices
Black Pepper Powder 

Garlic, chopped - 5 cloves
Onions, sliced into rings - 2 large
Scallions / green onion leaves - 2 stalks 
Brown Sugar
Olive or any Vegetable oil

Marinade :

Soy Sauce - 1/4 c
Worcestershire Sauce - 1/4 c
Freshly squeezed Lime Juice from 2 medium fruits
Black Pepper Powder 
Garlic, minced - 5 cloves

Cooking Procedure :

1. Mix Marinade and marinade the fish fillets at least 12 hours.  Drain the fillet but reserve the marinade for the sauce.

We usually marinade fishes for at least 4 hours but when it comes to tuna, we want it longer so that the flavor will seep deep into the fish meat and over power any fishy and slimy taste it has.
2.Heat at least 2 tbsp of oil in a frying pan and pan fry the tuna fillet at least 2 minutes on each side.
3.  In the same pan, remove any excess oil and retain just enough to grease the pan.  Heat it under medium fire and saute garlic and small amount of onions in it.
4.  Pour half or all the marinade  on the garlic and onions, add the sugar and a dash of black pepper powder and simmer for 2 minutes.  
5.  Add the remaining onion rings and simmer for another minute.
6.  Toss in the tuna fish fillets and simmer for another minute.

Garnish  with the scallion and serve it with your favorite rice.
