Of course, there are other available fishes to consider should you choose to replace the Yellowfin Tuna. However, I suggest you try this one because it can definitely meet your gusto.

Here is the Procedure for the Filipino Style Yellowfin Tuna Steak


  • 1 kilo Yellowfin Tuna (cleaned and sliced for the dish)
  • 10 pieces Calamansi (juice extracted)
  • ½ cup Soy Sauce
  • 4 large white onion (sliced into rings)
  • 1 cup water (add more if needed)
  • Natural cooking oil (for frying)
  • Salt to taste



After cleaning and straining the sliced tuna, add the extracted calamansi juice and soy sauce. Set aside for at least 30 minutes and afterwards, strain the yellowfin before frying.

Using a medium-sized frying pan, pour the right amount of natural cooking oil and allow heating for about 30-40 seconds. Next is to start frying the slices of tuna until they become golden brown. Make sure you flip the fishes to fry the both sides evenly.

Afterwards, use a strainer or plate with paper towel to strain the fried yellowfin and then set aside.

In a medium saucepan, pre-heat the cooking oil and then sauté the onion until golden brown. Add the remaining sauce, right amount of water and salt to complete the taste. Let simmer for about 2-3 minutes before adding the fried slices of yellowfin. Cover the saucepan and allow proper cooking for at least 3-5 minutes o until the tuna absorbed the sauce evenly.

Remember not to overcook and it is best to thicken the sauce perfectly.

When ready, transfer the dish in a serving platter and serve with plain rice to enjoy…
