Pistachio-Crusted Tuna Steaks

Pistachio crust teams up with a savory mustard-dill sauce for an exceptional tuna dish. Choose "sushi grade" tuna steaks if you prefer a milder flavor. Make it a meal: Serve with brown rice and steamed broccolini.

Serves 4

Prep Time 30 min

Total Time 30 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced shallot
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 3 tablespoon reduced-fat sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill, divided
  • 1 teaspoon whole-grain mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 cup coarse dry breadcrumbs, preferably whole-wheat (see Note)
  • 1/4 cup shelled pistachios
  • 4 4-ounce tuna steaks, 1-1 1/4 inches thick
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Place shallot, bay leaf and wine in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce until the wine is almost evaporated, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, discard bay leaf and transfer to a small bowl. Add sour cream, lemon juice, 1 teaspoon dill, mustard and 1/4 teaspoon salt; stir to combine.

Step 2

Put breadcrumbs, pistachios, the remaining 1 teaspoon dill and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a blender or food processor. Process until finely ground. Transfer to a shallow bowl. Dredge both sides of the tuna in the pistachio mixture.

Step 3

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the tuna and cook until browned, adjusting the heat as necessary to prevent burning, 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Serve with the lemon-dill sauce.
