  • Yield: 4 1x


  • 60ml (¼ cup) lime juice
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) fish sauce
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) sweet chili sauce
  • 10ml (2 tsp) sugar
  • 5ml (1 tsp) sesame oil
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 8 spring onions
  • 15ml (1 tbsp) olive oil
  • 4 tuna steaks, weighing about 140g (5 oz) each
  • 240g (8 oz) dried egg noodles
  • 1 mango, peeled and cubed
  • lime slices, to garnish


  1. To make the sauce for the noodles, place the lime juice, fish sauce, chili sauce and sugar in a small bowl and mix together.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan, then add the tuna steaks and cook over high heat for 2 minutes each side, or until cooked to your liking. Transfer the steaks to a warm plate, cover and keep warm.
  3. Place the noodles in a large saucepan of lightly salted, rapidly boiling water and return to the boil. Cook for 4 minutes, or until the noodles are tender. Drain well.
  4. Heat the sesame oil in a large frying pan. Add the spring onion and garlic and fry for a few minutes. Add the noodles and sauce to the pan and stir well to make sure the noodles get covered with the lovely sauce.
  5. Either cut the tuna into even cubes or slice it.
  6. When the noodles have been heated through place them on serving plates and top with the tuna and mango. Garnish with lime slices and serve immediately.
