Here is a super healthy recipe for you – Grilled Tuna Steak with Vegetables A simple meal in line with the Candida Diet. Perfect for healing and toning…


  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper, cayenne pepper and tumeric
  • drizzle freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • a small garlic clove


  • 1 fresh tuna steak

Side Vegetables

  • 2 handfuls fine green beans


  • 2 handfuls cherry tomatoes

Sauce (Optional)

  • a few fresh basil leaves


This dish is so good for you that you should enjoy it regularly.

You can swap the tuna for other oily fish if you like. Or serve it with a red pepper & cucumber salsa like here on the photo.

If you are feeling a bit under the weather and are still in phase 2 of the Candida Diet this low carb meal is a great addition to your other healthy dinner recipes.


Fine Green Beans & Tomato Salsa
Step 1
Wash and prepare the fine green beans and steam them for 20 minutes or until tender.

Chop the cherry tomatoes and lightly fry them in a little olive oil with a dash of spice.

Meanwhile finely chop the garlic and basil. Add them to the tomatoes once they are soft and smell sweet.
Grilled Tuna Steak
Step 2
The tuna virtually does not need any cooking – it’s so quick to make.

You can either put it under the grill for a few minutes each side. Or you can zap it in a griddled frying pan briefly from both sides.
It generally does not take longer than 2-3 minutes each side.

Be careful not to overdo it. When you leave it in too long it gets an unpleasant rubbery consistency.

We are aiming for lightly brown on the outside and lightly pink or just white on the inside. Then it’s lovely succulent and tender.
And with a drizzle of fresh lemon juice it’s even easier to digest.

Which makes it one of the very few allergy friendly & quick to cook healthy dinner recipes. Eat grilled tuna steak (or other fish) 2-3 times a week and you are doing your body a massive favour.

This dish has lots of anti-inflammatory properties and is fairly easy to digest. It’s also perfect if you want to get more toned or while you are following a candida diet plan.

        Hello Linnie, thanks so much for leaving another comment after what happened there. It’s so harsh when that happens. It has happened to me a few times and it is infuriating and highly frustrating to say the least! These days I often pre-write my messages in a word doc so they are saved in case the browser or my computer crashes. But sometimes I forget or write in notepad which doesn’t auto-save… grrr…!
        Anyway, the main thing is that you like my blog yay and for that I’m grateful :)
        Thanks for reaching out!
