Le Pinay in Dubai… :)

Welcome to my world! My happiness.. my favorite things… my travels… my journey… My life. :) I’m a rookie housewife in Dubai- trying to be a domestic goddess! “JOIE DE VIVRE” – (FRENCH for joie, “joy”; de, “of”; vivre, “living”; “THE JOY OF LIVING”) is a term sometimes imported into English to express a cheerful enjoyment of life; an exultation of spirit. Joie de vivre, as one scholar has written, can be a: JOY OF CONVERSATION, JOY OF EATING, JOY OF ANYTHING ONE MIGHT DO…

I got this recipe from All Recipes . It’s supposed to be grilled, but I just fried it coz we don’t have a griller. I modified it a bit. It’s really good. My hubby liked it, parang pang-hotel daw hehe 😉



1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup lime juice

1/8 cup balsamic vinegar

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger root

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

1 pound tuna steak/fillet

salt and ground white pepper



1/4 cup honey

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons chopped cilantro


Rub salt and pepper on tuna steak (easy on the salt, it’s not supposed to be very salty). Marinate in lime cilantro sauce for about 3 hours. Cook 1-2 minutes on non-stick pan (don’t add oil anymore), then flip. When almost cooked already, pour glaze on top.

Feel free to adjust ingredients according to your taste. 


Bon Appetit! 🙂
