Thai Crusted Tuna serves 3

I am well aware that a recipe serving 3 is odd but this was how many I was making for when I wrote this recipe!. There was plenty of marinade so I think this could easily cover another tuna steak.

AS THIS RECIPE LEAVES THE TUNA VERY RARE, PLEASE ONLY BUY THE FRESHEST TUNA YOU CAN GET.

Ingredients:

500 tuna steak, sliced into 3 pieces

1 green Thai chilli, deseeded

Small knob of ginger, peeled

1 lemongrass, outer stalk removed

2 tbsp Thai basil

2 tbsp coriander

1/4 lime (including skin)

1 tbsp rapeseed oil

2 tbsp soy sauce

Method:

  • Blitz all the marinade ingredients in a blender until fairly smooth.

  • With your hands, massage into both sides of the fish. 

  • Cover and chill for 10 mins in the fridge.

  • In a large frying pan, heat 1 tsp oil until it is very hot.

  • Sear the tuna steaks for around 1 minute each side, leaving them rare in the centre.

  • Slice on a diagonal and serve with salad, wilted green or rice noodles.
