Herb Encrusted Tuna over Thin Rice Noodles

A meal fit for a King! Sushi grade Tuna over thin rice noodle with selected vegetables. You will think you are dining at a fine restaurant but you are in the comfort of your very own home! Try this easy dish for that SPECIAL OCCASION!

2, 4OZ Sushi Grade Tuna Steaks
1 TBS Melted Butter
1 TBS Lemon Juice
1 TBS Old Bay Crab Seasoning ( or your favorite crab seasoning)
1 TSP Parsley Flakes
1 TSP Ginger Powder
1 TSP Basil
1 TSP Onion Powder
1 TSP Thyme
Melt butter & add the lemon juice dredge each tuna steak thoroughly . Next mix all the seasoning together then coat each tuna steak with the seasoning so each side is coated. Grill on a hot grill 2 minutes each side OR melt 1 TBS butter in skillet add the steaks & sear each tuna steak 2 minutes per side. You want the steaks rare in the center for that AWESOME Tuna Steak flavor.

In a large pot of boiling water add 1/2 TSP salt. Add 1 cup shredded cabbage, 1 cup frozen edamame, 1/2 cup frozen spinach, one onion chopped, 1 TSP crushed garlic, and 1/2 of a large carrot cut into thin slices. Reduce heat to medium and add 1/2 package of 8.8 OZ Thin Rice Noodles. Stir & let sit in the hot water about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain well & stir in 1 TBS of Teriyaki with Honey & Sesame  Sauce ( I used Pampered Chefs) and about 10 drops of a good quality Soy Sauce. Stir until combined & use the noodles as a bed for your Tuna Steaks!  A SIMPLE BUT AWESOME MEAL!  The Tuna Steaks pictured were pan seared as the weather did not cooperate for grilling but it was DELISH! The Tuna is slightly hot & spicy with the noodle bed slightly sweet & it is the perfect combo!
