Tonight's meal is one of my recent faves. I have managed to convert some non-tuna eaters to tuna LOVERS with this one, so if in doubt please give it a go, it really is delicious. My presentation leaves a lot to be desired so if you are not convinced by the photos just trust me.
- Tuna steaks
- Fresh ginger
- Teriyaki sauce
- Cabbage (I have used a bit of purple and a bit of green here but you can use one or the other)
- A bunch of radishes
- Big handful of fresh mint
- 2-3 lemons
- Olive oil
- Parmesan cheese freshly grated
- Green peas
- Small red chilli
The first thing you do is to take your tuna steaks, chop up some ginger and garlic and pop it on top of the tuna, cover it in teriyaki sauce and pop it in the fridge for an hour or two.
Now, for the salad. This salad is an absolute winner and we eat it all the time with various meals. It's a great way to get some goodness into you and it is VERY tasty. My friend Adles gave this recipe to me (thanks Adles x).
Ok, chop up the cabbage, thinly slice the radish, and pop it all in a salad bowl (after washing of course) with the mint, peas and chilli. Sometimes I don't have all the ingredients and I just use what I have and it still tastes wonderful (eg tonight I didn't have peas and radishes so I just went without those and it was still YUM).
Once it's all in the bowl, put a nice lashing of olive oil over it and give it a good mix. Then squeeze the lemons and add the freshly squeezed lemon juice in and mix again, then you grate up a heap of parmesan cheese and mix it all up. Whatever you do, don't go light on the lemon juice or the parmesan, you need a lot of both to give it a good kick.
And that's as easy as it is! Of course, if you are anything like me you will need to pour yourself a nice glass of white to enjoy with it.

Happy cooking, and more importantly eating!
