Snappy citrus tuna

SERVES 1

Ingredients

Juice of ½ lime
zest of 1 lime
1 tsp light soy sauce
1 tsp toasted sesame oil
2 tsp olive oil
1 tuna steak

To serve
1 red chilli, sliced
green salad, cooked vegetables, stir-fried noodles or brown rice

Method

Mix the lime zest and juice, soy sauce and oils together in a small bowl and whisk well. Place the tuna in the sauce and turn it a few times to ensure it is well covered.

Heat a frying pan or griddle pan until hot, and cook the tuna for 3 minutes on each side, drizzling small amounts of the liquid over the tuna as it cooks (this helps to get the flavours into the fish and also gives it some colour). Cut into slices and serve with the sliced chilli a green salad, cooked vegetables, stir-fried noodles or brown rice.
