1 cup precooked and shredded potatoes, thawed
(We used Ore Ida Hash Browns Country Style Shredded Potatoes.)

2 shallots, finely chopped

1 Tbsp. creamy horseradish sauce

1 tsp. Dijon mustard

1/2 tsp. garlic salt

1/4 tsp black pepper, ground

4 tsp. fat free mayonnaise
(We used fat free Miracle Whip.)

4 tuna steaks, 6 ounces each

1 Tbsp. canola oil

1 lemon, cut into quarters

We were looking for a tuna steak recipe when we stumbled across one for Mahi-Mahi on EatingWell.com. The ingredients were good but we thought it needed more fish per serving. After making a slight adjustment on cooking time and fish serving size, we have a winning tuna dish.

1. In a mixing bowl, combine the first six ingredients, potatoes, shallots, horseradish, mustard, garlic salt and pepper.

2. Spread 1 teaspoon of mayonnaise over each of the tuna steaks. Then divide the potato mixture into four servings and press it into the top of the tuna.

This is what the tuna looks like covered in the potatoes, before you cook it.

3. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Once it's hot, add the canola oil and spread it evenly around in the pan. Then put the tuna steaks in with the POTATO SIDE DOWN. Cook until it turns crispy and browns, about 3 to 5 minutes.

4. Gently turn the tuna over, reduce heat to medium and continue cooking on the other side for another 3 to 5 minutes. The tuna is done when it flakes easily with a fork. Serve each tuna with a lemon wedge.
