Combine the teriyaki sauce, lime juice and chilli powder in a shallow non-metalic bowl. Add the tuna and toss well to combine.
Heat a non-stick wok or large non-stick frying pan over a high heat. Add the garlic and spring onions and stir-fry for two minutes. Add tuna, reserving the liquid. Stir-fry over high heat for 1 minute.

Serve into two bowls and serve at once.
- This is best made just before serving. However, any leftovers can also be stored in an airtight container in the fridge overnight and either reheated or served as a cold salad.
- Try different greens depending on what’s in season. Chinese broccoli is packed full of goodness and is a great alternative.
- If you don’t have any noodles, try cooking the vegetables without them. You can then serve the greens with the tuna on top of a bed of rice.
