Pistachios, when eaten with high-carbohydrate foods, may result in lower than expected blood sugar levels, an important factor in reducing risk of diabetes.
7 ounces Tuna steak, cut thick if possible
1 Egg white
1 cup Semolina mixed with all-purpose flour
1 ½ cup Natural pistachio granules
1 Green apple
3 bushes Endives, small
2 ½ tablespoons Soy sauce
2 ½ tablespoons Honey
Whip egg white until foamy. Dip tuna steak first in flour and semolina mixture, then in egg white and finally in pistachio granules.
Press well and pan sear until pistachio crust is golden. Remove from pan and set aside to cool.
Julienne cut endive and sauté with diced green apple. Douse with soy sauce and honey diluted with a drop of hot water, evaporate off liquid and remove from heat. Arrange a bed of endive and apple in serving plate with the tuna steak on top, cut into slices.
