Chia-Crusted Oven-Roasted Tuna with Mango Fruit Salsa

Directions

Mango Salsa:

  1. In a medium bowl combine mango and pineapple. Add strawberries, cilantro, and lime juice. Toss to combine. Set aside.

Balsamic Glaze:***

  1. In a small nonstick saucepan combine brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, and the water. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, 10 to 12 minutes or until mixture reaches the consistency of maple syrup and coats the back of a spoon; stir frequently. Let stand to cool completely (mixture will thicken as it cools).

Chia-Crusted Tuna:

  1. Thaw tuna, if frozen. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Sprinkle tuna with the pepper. Spread chia seeds on a plate. Press each tuna fillet into the chia seeds to evenly coat one side.
  2. Coat a shallow nonstick or foil-lined baking pan with the canola oil. Place tuna, chia seed sides up, in prepared baking pan. Roast 10 to 12 minutes or until tuna is firm to the touch and an instant-read thermometer inserted in centers registers 145 degrees F (centers may still be pink); do not turn tuna over during roasting. Remove tuna from the oven; let stand 2 to 3 minutes before serving.
  3. To serve, drizzle each plate with 1 to 2 teaspoons of the balsamic glaze (store any remaining glaze in the refrigerator for another use); top with cooked tuna. Spoon salsa over tuna.
