Tuna Steak with Tomatoes and Mushrooms

This is another recipe from Robin Miller of the Food Network. I picked up her cookbook recently and it has a lot of really easy and healthy recipes in it.

As I tried to get photos of the recipe, my sous chef offered his assistance by walking all ove rthe book so I apologize for the shadows and blur.

Lets gather some ingredients and get cooking. You will need some tomatoes, shallot, vermouth, thyme, olive oil, mushrooms and salt and pepper.

Chop up the mushrooms and the shallot. If you can't find shallot you can use red onion.

Season the tuna steaks with salt and pepper.

Heat some oil in the pan and get the tuna steaks in. Brown them for just a couple of minutes on each side.

Get them out of the pan and add a bit more oil in.

Add the shallots and mushrooms.

Stir in the thyme...and then...

Where are the pics of the final steps?? Well, I totally forgot because I was so excited to eat this. But the last steps are simple, add in the tomatoes and the vermouth and return the steaks to the pan. Let it simmer for about 5 minutes and you are ready to eat.

This is a simple after work meal that comes together in no time. It is also pretty healthy. If you can't find tuna this would be good with any white fish you might be able to get in your area.


  1. Looks great! Which Robin Miller cookbook is it from -- she has three, I think,

  2. I would never think to cook with vermouth... interesting...

  3. This does look good and as so happens I have tomatoes and mushrooms, and some healthy tuna steaks...I like the picture book style BTW
