Melt in the mouth tasty, healthy and so easy to prepare

seared ahi tuna

Tuna steaks300g cut as 2 thick steaks
Iceberg lettuce
Spring onion
Red pepper
Pine nuts
Soy sauce
Lemon Juice
Olive oil
Vinegar (preferably raspberry)

You may wonder at the sense of eating fish that is raw in the middle. Like the best steaks, this is how it is meant to be eaten, and until youíve tried this you wonít know what you are missing. Be brave, this recipe is so quick and easy to cook that itís definitely one to cook in front of your guest(s), because it requires very little concentration.
. . . The tuna will just melt in the mouth and is so healthy especially if you are on a low fat diet. Buy the freshest tuna you can from a good supermarket deli counter on the day. Arrange it so it looks fabulous on the plate; itíll taste as good as it looks.

How to make it

Get all your ingredients out and line them up next to your preparation area, this is a quick meal to cook and you want to be ready for action. Put some water on to boil, ready for the vegetables you have chosen to serve with your seared tuna. Cut the lettuce in half and then into two wedges. Carefully lift up each lettuce slice without disrupting it too much and lay one centrally on each dinner plate. Right away this looks so fresh and appetizing. Slice the cucumber very thinly and lay three or four pieces next to the lettuce. Cut some of the pepper into very thin strips and arrange as artistically as possible. Slice the spring onion and put to one side.
. . . You can either invent your own dressing or, put equal measures (only roughly equal) of olive oil and vinegar (a fancy one would be nice, white wine or raspberry for example) in a glass or jar, add a good dessert spoon of lemon juice and three generous dessert spoons of soy sauce, if you like it sweet add a dash of maple syrup and stir, or if you used a jar, put the lid on and shake like crazy.
. . . Now by this time, the water should be boiling, so put the prepared vegetables in. You donít really need vegetables, because you already have the salad, so keep it simple, fine green beans or baby asparagus tips, for example. Donít over cook the vegetables; three to five minutes is all most vegetables need, by the time the tuna is done they should be ready.
. . . Heat some olive oil in a frying pan till it is really hot. Carefully place the tuna in the pan, it should sizzle. Cooking it should only take a couple minutes each side (which will leave it raw in the middle, which is exactly how it should be). Cook until the outside of the meat has turned from pink to light brown all over, but donít overcook; the pink inside is what seared tuna is all about.
. . . When the tuna is cooked on the outside carefully lift both pieces on to a clean chopping board and using a very sharp knife cut the tuna into slices about 10mm - 15mm thick, being careful not to break up the structure of the tuna. Drain the vegetables and lay on the plate artistically next to the salad. Sprinkle a few pine nuts over the salad. Arrange the sliced tuna over the lettuce and drizzle a splash of your dressing over the top of the tuna and garnish with the sliced spring onions.

The recipe instructions are so easy to follow, and they're quick to download.

Cooking with your kids is an important thing to do. It gives them a real sense of achievement and satisfaction, while teaching them some very useful life skills; measuring, estimating, following instructions to achieve a result, dealing with some limited forms of danger (i.e. the hot stove or oven), and gives them confidence and the knowledge that they can prepare food, which is, after all, one of lifeís basic requirements.


What could be a better way to spend an afternoon? Your place gets filled with that gorgeous smell of baking, you and your kids have a great time together, exploring the world of cooking and you all get to eat some tasty treat when itís all over, just in time for tea.
