• Basil and coriander crusted seared tuna

    Serves: 2
    Cooking Time: 10 mins


    • 50g fresh basil
    • 10ml (2 tsp) coriander seeds, dry roasted for 2 minutes
    • 1 garlic clove
    • 2,5ml (½ tsp) sea salt
    • 5ml (1 tsp) lemon juice
    • splash of olive oil
    • 1 small red or green chilli, optional
    • 2 fillets of fresh tuna



    In a pestle and mortar, pound all of the ingredients, apart from the tuna, to form a chunky paste. Rub onto both sides of the tuna (be sure to cook within 30 minutes of adding the crust).


    Sear the tuna in a very hot griddle pan or grill, turning only once to get great char marks.
