This is another firm favourite standby meal. Use only the freshest tuna and make sure it is a lovely ruby colour with no fishy smell. You can leave out the chilli flakes if you don’t like spicy food. The coleslaw also goes brilliantly with lamb chops or chicken.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 x 140g tuna steaks
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
pinch dried chilli flakes
sea salt and freshly ground pepper
lime wedges
coriander leaves

Wasabi coleslaw

Quantity Ingredient
1/4 red cabbage, finely sliced
1/4 white cabbage, finely sliced
2 spring onions, finely sliced on the diagonal
handful snow peas, finely sliced on the diagonal
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 tablespoon greek yoghurt
wasabi paste, to taste

Method

  1. To make the coleslaw, combine the cabbage, spring onions and snow peas in a mixing bowl.
  2. In a smaller bowl mix the mayonnaise and yoghurt to make a creamy dressing, then add as much or as little wasabi as you like. I find it best to start with a small squeeze and increase to taste. Add the dressing to the coleslaw ingredients and toss to combine thoroughly. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  3. To prepare the tuna steaks, rub them all over with a little olive oil then sprinkle with a good pinch of dried chilli flakes and season generously with salt and pepper.
  4. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a high heat. Place the tuna in the pan then lower the heat to medium–high. Cook for around 4 minutes then turn and cook for 2 minutes on the other side. This will cook the tuna medium–rare. Cook for 6 minutes on one side and 3 minutes on the other if you prefer it well-done.
  5. Serve the tuna steaks with coleslaw on top, lime wedges on the side and scattered with coriander leaves.
