What a lovely dinner this was. Tuna steaks in a beautiful chilli and lime sauce with salad and chilli and lime buttered new potatoes. Eaten in the garden with a chilled glass of Sauvignon Blanc. Perfect mid week dinner. Quick, light and healthy.
2 fresh tuna steaks
1 red chilli – sliced thinly
Juice of a lime
1 large clove of garlic – minced
Tablespoon olive oil and a glug to pan fry
Salt and cracked black pepper to season
New potatoes and salad to serve
Chilli and lime butter for potatoes – approx 4 each
Lage squeeze of lime
1/4 teaspoon chilli powder
Start by boiling your new potatoes. When they have about 8 minutes left you can start to pan fry your tuna steaks.
While the potatoes are boiling mix up your olive oil, lime juice, salt, pepper and sliced chilli in a small bowl.
Place your tuna steaks on the work surface and massage the marinade into them turning to get the steaks fully coated.
When the potatoes have 8 minutes or so left, place another glug of oil in the pan and heat. Add your tuna steaks and pan fry for approx 3-4 minutes each side.
Serve with your new potatoes and a fresh, crunchy salad. Simply mix up the ingredients for the chilli and lime butter and add to the potatoes when they are drained.
