Jazz up tuna with Moroccan spices for a super fast meal.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  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. Sit the tuna steaks in a non-metallic dish and cover with two-thirds of the sauce.
  3. Cover with plastic wrap, then leave to marinate in the fridge for about 20 mins (or for up to 4hrs).
  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. Drizzle over the remaining sauce paste to finish.
  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.
