Recipe Share - Tuna with Jalapeno Sour Cream

I tried this recipe tonight, and it was so easy and turned out so perfectly, I thought I'd share it!

I found the recipe at, but the credit goes to "Cooking Light - Super Fast Suppers".

Tuna with Jalapeño Sour Cream Recipe

Tuna with Jalapeno Sour Cream:

  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice (1/2 lime)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • (6-ounce) tuna steaks (about 1 inch thick)
  • Cooking spray

Combine first 5 ingredients; set aside.
Combine chili powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Rub tuna with chili powder mixture; coat with cooking spray. Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot; add tuna. Cook 3 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Serve with sour cream mixture.

Now, I prefer my tuna medium-well, with only a touch of pink (unless I'm eating sushi, of course). So I cooked mine for about 5 minutes a side. It was super easy, super delicious, Mark loved it, and it fits into my "protein and veggie" way of eating. I served it with some oven roasted broccoli and a tomato and avocado salad.

Let me know it you give it a try!
