Fried Tuna Steak on Green Leaf Salad


This tasty salad is not only packed with vitamins but the delicious tuna steaks provide you with the essential fatty acid Omega-3.

Ingredients (Serves 4):
• 1 unwaxed lemon
• 2 garlic cloves
• 150ml extra virgin olive oil
• Salt & pepper
• 4 tuna steaks
• 300g mixed green leaf lettuce
• 1 tablespoon brown sugar
• 4 slices of wholemeal bread
• 3 tablespoons butter

Method
Rinse off the lemon with hot water, dry, grate the zest and squeeze out some juice. Peel and crush the garlic, then mix with lemon zest, oil, salt and pepper. Rinse off the tuna steaks, pat dry with some kitchen towel and leave to marinate in half of the oil mixture.

Wash the lettuce and leave to drain in a colander then tear into small pieces. Mix the leftover marinade with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and the sugar then season to taste with salt and pepper.

Dice the bread. Heat the butter in a non-stick pan and fry the bread until it’s crispy. Set aside for later use.

Heat a pan and fry the tuna steaks on each side for 3-4 minutes. Throw the lettuce in a bowl with the dressing and mix thoroughly. To serve, equally spread out the salad on 4 plates, sprinkle with the bread croutons and place the tuna steak on top.
