Another fantastic recipe blog from our Sous Chef Scott. This time he tells us how to make a scrumptious Tuna Steak with a Chunky Tomato Salsa with Baby Potatoes.
We have been trying to use ingredients that have been available to us at the supermarket but we know how hard it's been to source some things over the last few weeks - so we hope you have everything you need!
Here's Scott's recipe:
Tuna Steak with Chunky Tomato Salsa + Baby Potatoes
Yellow fin tuna is a lovely and delicate fish completely different from tinned tuna. It also doesn’t have to be cooked all the way through which I’d recommend cooking to medium. This can be done with a fresh salsa Verde or Gremolata but I’ll be doing a simple tomato salsa.
- 2 Tuna Steaks
- 1 tbsp Finely Diced Red Onion
- 1 tsp Finely Diced Chilli
- 1 tbsp Finely Diced Red Pepper
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- ½ Squeezed Lime
- 125g Cherry Plum Tomatoes
- 1 tsp Finely Chopped Garlic
- 1 tbsp Capers
- Baby Potatoes
- Fresh Basil
- We’ll start by cutting the cherry tomatoes into quarters. Its best to have good quality cherry tomatoes as they are full of flavour and doesn’t require any sugar to take away the acidity of the tomato.
- Roast in the oven with the finely diced garlic for 7-8 minutes at 170°c, just enough to soften them up.
- Once cooled mix in with the diced red onion, peppers, extra virgin olive oil, lime juice and finely sliced fresh basil. Then season and leave on the side.
- Blanch your asparagus and samphire and put into cold water (preferably ice water) to keep it from overcooking and retain its vibrant green colour.
- Boil your baby potatoes.
- Tuna steaks depending on thickness and how you would like it cooked will take 3-6 minutes so bare this in mind when cooking your potatoes.
- When cooking the tuna use the same pan to fry the asparagus for 30 seconds.
- Once the potatoes are cooked, drain and slice and mix in with the samphire and capers.
- Finally, we will cook our spinach in butter until it has wilted and drain.
- Time to plate up now and tuck in.
We hope you enjoy your tuna steak and don’t forget to share your pictures with us on social.
