2 servings


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 5-ounce tuna steaks 
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste 
  • ⅓ cup fat-free half-and-half 
  • ¼ cup garlic-and-herb spreadable cheese
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice 
  • 2 cups fresh spinach


  1. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Melt butter in the hot skillet. Season tuna steaks with salt and pepper and place in the skillet. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove to a serving plate and keep warm.
  2. Add half-and-half and spreadable cheese to the same skillet and stir until incorporated. Add lemon juice. Set 2 tablespoons of the sauce aside. Add spinach to the remaining sauce in the skillet and cook until wilted, 1 to 2 minutes.
