Seared Tuna and Soba Noodle Stir Fry Bowls

If you follow my Instagram, you know that we just got back from Maui for a spring break we will never forget with family. I enjoyed being in the tropical weather for over a week and all of the delicious fresh fish dishes. One thing that Maui really does well is Ahi Tuna. I ate *so many* incredible tuna dishes that I just loved. So, after a few weeks of being home my cravings kicked in and I thought it would be fun to make this Seared Tuna and Soba Noodle Stir Fry Bowls. It’s easy to make if you can find good quality fresh tuna to work with. If you can find that, the rest comes together in no time and the taste is absolutely delicious!!

For the Soba Noodle Stir Fry:

  • 9.5 oz soba noodles package
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1/2 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 fresno chili, thinly sliced (a small jalapeno is ok too)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 oz snow peas
  • 1/2 cup matchstick carrots
  • 1/2 tsp ginger powder
  • 3 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • avocado, sliced, for serving
  • 1/2 watermelon radish, sliced thin, for serving
  • 1 lime, sliced into wedges, for serving

For the Seared Tuna:

  • 4 4oz fresh big eye or ahi tuna filets
  • 4 tsp Everything but the Bagel seasoning
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil


For the Soba Noodle Stir Fry:

  • Bring a pot of water to a boil. Once boiling add the soba noodles and cook according the package instructions. Drain, rinse well and set aside. 
  • Heat a wok or large skillet over medium high heat with avocado oil and sesame oil. Add the fresno chilis, garlic, snow peas, carrots and ginger powder. Sautee, stirring, until snow peas are slightly charred and tender, about 3-4 minutes. 
  • Add the soba noodles, coconut aminos and fresh lime juice. Continue cooking, stirring, until all flavors are combined, 3 to 4 minutes. 
  • Remove the stir fry from the heat but cover to keep warm while you prepare the tuna steaks.

For the Seared Tuna:

  • Place the Everything but the Bagel seasoning on a plate and coat both large sides of the tuna filets so that it is completely and evenly coated. 
  • Heat a skillet over high heat with 2 tbsp avocado oil. Swirl the pan so the oil evenly coats the pan. The skillet should be very hot and oil should just to smoke. Sear tuna steaks, about 30 seconds per side for rare and 90 seconds per side for medium rare and warm in the center. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for a minute. Using a very sharp, good knife, carefully slice the tuna steaks. 
  • Serve the tuna steaks with the soba noodle stir fry along with sliced avocado, watermelon radishes, and a wedge of lime. Enjoy!

    Delicious dinner and great hack to just use bagel seasoning to sear tuna! This is going to be very handy for all my summer salads 🙂

    Hey Alex! Have you had any success finding gluten-free soba noodles? I’m in Austin so we have similar stores to you in Dallas, and I haven’t been able to find them at Whole Foods, Central Market, or at HEB! 🙁
