Sesame-seared tuna with rosé peri-peri salsa

Serves: 6
Cooking Time: 30 mins


  • Dressing
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 50ml Portuguese rosé wine (Casal Garcia/Mateus)
  • 2 red chillies, finely chopped cut into cubes
  • handful fresh kale, shredded
  • small handful fresh baby salad leaves



For the dressing, mix together the lemon juice, rosé, chillies, paprika and garlic. Using a blender, blitz together while slowly adding the oil until emulsified.


For the sesame tuna, brush the tuna with the oil, season and sear in a saucepan over high heat, 1 minute on each side. Remove from heat and coat thoroughly with black sesame seeds. Thinly slice using a very sharp knife.


For the salsa, mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Drizzle with the dressing and serve with the tuna.
