Top 10 Tasty Seafood Recipes That Can Help You Lose Your Fat

4. Coriander-Crusted Tuna with Black Bean Salsa

If you’re a fan of punchy flavors and have a yearning for southwestern cuisine, try tuna instead of your typical steak or chicken. The Dairy Council of California reports that the American Heart Association recommends we eat fish at least twice a week, and heartily recommends tuna as one of those options. You get similar health benefits to eating the canned “chicken of the sea,” but fresh is always a nice change-up.

Cooking Light has a host of fresh tuna recipes, including this one with southwestern flair. This one has a handful of ingredients, mostly because of the salsa, but it couldn’t be easier to prepare. One six-ounce tuna steak prepared this way will have about 12 grams of fat, 356 calories, and almost 44 grams of protein. (There’s a reason tuna salad is a go-to before the gym.)


1 tablespoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground cumin
¾ teaspoon kosher salt, divided
¼ teaspoon black pepper
4 (6-ounce) tuna steaks (about 1-inch thick)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup diced plum tomato (about 3 tomatoes)
½ cup chopped yellow bell pepper
¼ cup sliced green onions
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 (15-ounce) can no-salt-added black beans, rinsed and drained
Cilantro sprigs (optional)


Combine coriander, cumin, ½ teaspoon salt, and black pepper in a small bowl. Rub spice mixture evenly over both sides of fish. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add fish to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from heat. Combine tomato and next 5 ingredients (through beans) in a medium bowl. Stir in remaining ¼ teaspoon salt, and toss well. Serve salsa with fish. Garnish with cilantro sprigs, if desired.
