This is one of my favorite warm-weather meals  — Seared Tuna and Soba Noodle Stir Fry Bowls!

Seared Tuna and Soba Noodle Stir Fry Bowls

After a trip to Maui one spring break filled with all kinds of delicious fresh fish dishes, I came home inspired. 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 these Seared Tuna and Soba Noodle Bowls. They are 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!

Seared Tuna and Soba Noodle Stir Fry Bowls

What You’ll Need:

  • Fresh Bigeye or Ahi Tuna
  • Everything But the Bagel Seasoning
  • Soba Noodles
  • Fresno Chili
  • Matchstick Carrots
  • Avocado
  • Watermelon Radish
  • Limes
  • Plus, a Few Additional Pantry Ingredients

You’ll start by making the soba noodle base for your bowls. You’ll boil your noodles according to the package directions then set them aside while you make the rest of the noodle base by sauteeing the Fresno chili, garlic, and snowpeas in a combination of avocado and sesame oil with ginger powder. Next, you’ll add the coconut aminos and fresh lime juice with the noodles to the skillet and toss until well coated then set aside while you quickly sear up the tuna.

For the tuna, you’ll simply coat both sides in Everything But the Bagel Seasoning. This helps create a great crust while also adding lots of flavor! You’ll place these tuna onto a very hot skillet and sear very quickly. I cook mine for 30 seconds on each side, but if you prefer to have your tuna more cooked, you can increase the cooking time to 90 seconds per side for medium rare. Let the tuna rest for at least a minute then cut into slices using a very sharp knife.

To assemble, simply divide the soba noodle stir fry into your bowls then top with sliced tuna, avocado, and radish. Serve with lime wedges and enjoy!

I hope you enjoy these fresh, filling, and flavorful seared tuna bowls as much as I did!

For the Soba Noodle Stir Fry:

  • Bring a pot of water to a boil. Once boiling add the soba noodles and cook according to the package instructions. Drain, rinse well and set aside.

For the Seared Tuna:

  • Heat a skillet over high heat with 2 tablespoons avocado oil. Swirl the pan so the oil evenly coats the pan. The skillet should be very hot. 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!

    Great flavors in this! I didn’t have sesame oil (I thought it was in the cupboard – nope), so I used truffle oil.

    I also thought the everything-but-the-bagel seasoning was a great idea.

  2. 5 stars
    This recipe was very easy and delicious! We also added some bok choy to it. The everything seasoning was such a great idea for the Tuna. Will be making again.

    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 🙂

  4. 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! 🙁
