2 Tbsp Soy sauce
1 Tbsp Olive oil
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard

step #4

When it's time to plate, add curly celery, asparagus, fresh cherry tomatoes, chopped garlic, and lime zest. You can also add the juice of a lime and a touch of olive oil to add some extra acidity to the dish.

step #5

Did you know?

It’s recommended by many nutritionists to avoid excessive fish consumption as there’s always a risk of mercury contamination and eventual build-up, but a few studies have shown that, thanks to the presence of selenoneine, tuna might not have the same associated risks. Additionally, tuna provides a ton of selenium that helps eliminate and manage free radicals in the body. Finally, when you cook tuna, either through steaming or searing, you create peptides with strong antioxidant properties, great for protecting cell membranes and protecting against the build-up of certain compounds in the body.
