Units: US | Metric
- 1 1/2 lbs tuna steaks, cut into 1 1/4 inch cubes
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 2 teaspoons lemon zest, finely grated
- 1If using wooden skewers, soak in water for 30 minutes so they don't burn.
- 2Place the tuna in a shallow non-metallic dish. In a small bowl, combine the oil, cumin and lemon rind and pour over the tuna. Toss to coat, then cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
- 3Meanwhile, for the chermoula, place the coriander, cumin, paprika and cayenne pepper in a small frying pan and toast over medium heat for 30 seconds, or until fragrant. DO NOT BURN! Combine with the remaining chermoula ingredients and set aside.
- 4Thread the tuna onto the skewers. Lightly oil your indoor grill or your barbeque and cook the skewers for 1 minute on each side for rare, or 2 minutes for medium.
- 5Serve the skewers on a bed of couscous and drizzle with the chermoula.
