    1. 1
      Put the cilantro, garlic, spices and lemon juice into a blender and blitz to a paste. With the motor running, slowly add the olive oil until you get a smooth, thick sauce. Set aside.
    2. 2
      Sit the tuna steaks in a non-metallic dish and cover with two-thirds of the sauce.
    3. 3
      Cover with plastic wrap, then leave to marinate in the fridge for about 20 mins (or for up to 4hrs).
    4. 4
      Heat a griddle pan or broiler. Shake off any excess marinade, season the tuna steaks, then cook for 2-4 mins, depending on thickness for medium rare, turning once (cook 2 mins more for well done).
    5. 5
      Drizzle over the remaining sauce paste to finish.
    6. 6
      Try serving with new potatoes; for a Moroccan twist, toss melted butter, harissa spice mix and chopped cilantro leaves through the potatoes.

      It was very easy but it seemed to overpower the fish, but I think I might try it on chicken next time. The flavors are nice.
