Number of Servings: 2


    2 tsp lime juice
    1 tsp fish sauce (nam pal)
    2 tsp chili oil
    1 tsp honey
    1 (14 oz) can of black beans
    2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
    2 thin-cut tuna steaks--4 oz each
    1/2 tsp kosher salt


1. Heat a ridged griddel and while it's heating up, get on with the black bean salad.

2. In a bowl, wisk the lime juice, fish sauce, chile oil and honey.

3. Drain the beans and rinse them to remove the gloop, then toss them in the dressing to coat well. Divide between two plates and add most of the cilantro.

4. Slap the tuna steaks on the griddle and cook for 30 seconds a side. If they are not very thin, you may want to cook them an extra 30 seconds per side. Cut into one steak to check that it's cooked as you like it before placing it on the plate with the beans. Sprinkle with course salt and the remaining cilantro.

Makes two servings--4 oz tuna and 7 oz bean salad each
