The Romancing The Bee Diet – Day Two – Grilled Tuna Salad With Avocado and Honey

Fat bee

The Diet is going well!  I haven’t felt a bit deprived and I’ve already lost a pound! I’m pretty sure I could live on Broiled Grapefruit with Honey and Cinnamon.  🙂

I don’t want to get bored, though, so here is another delicious Romancing The Bee Diet recipe. Enjoy!!

Grilled tuna salad

Yield:  2-4 servings

Ingredients

1 pound very fresh tuna steak, 1-inch thick

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, plus extra for sprinkling

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus extra for sprinkling

Grated zest of 1 lime

3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice

1/2 teaspoon wasabi powder

1 teaspoon soy sauce

1 teaspoon honey

5 dashes Tabasco sauce

1 minced scallion, white and green parts

1 firm, ripe Haas avocado, medium and diced

1/8 cup finely diced red onion

Directions

Brush a heated grill pan with oil. Brush both sides of the tuna with olive oil and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Cook the tuna for about 2 1/2 minutes on each side. Remove to a plate. The tuna will be cooked on the outside and raw inside. Allow to cool slightly and cut it into medium-diced pieces.

In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lime zest, lime juice, wasabi powder, honey, soy sauce, Tabasco, 2 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Add the sauce to the tuna, add the scallion, avocados, and red onion, and mix well. The sauce will “cook” the raw parts of the tuna after it sits for a few minutes.

    Keep up the good work. In Weight Watchers we call it tracking, in other programs journaling. Whatever the name, when you write down everything you eat you are more careful of what goes into your mouth. I love that you are sharing the recipes that are helping you.

    • Hi Carol Ann! Thanks for your comment!!

      I really like the WW diet, but I don’t do well with sugar or grains at all. They set me off. But you will notice a definite similarity in the two diets!! 🙂
