I love tuna. It has a great meaty texture and what best to compliment this fish but to use a fresh homemade minty sauce. I have also incorporated parsley which gives it a lovely herby taste and compliments the fish beautifully.

Fresh Tuna Steaks in a Minty Sauce

Serves 2




2 Fresh Tuna Steaks

Good Handful of Mint Leaves

Good Handful of Parsley- Same as Mint Leaves

2 tbsp Olive Oil

½ tbsp Balsamic Vinegar

2tsp Sugar

½ a Lemon- Juice

1 Clove of Garlic

Pinch of Salt and Pepper

½ tsp Mustard




Chop the mint and parsley extremely small. Crush the garlic and add it to the herbs. Take all the ingredients and mix with the mint and parsley. Give it a good mix to make sure all the ingredients are nicely mixed. Take the tuna steak and season on both sides. Place on a well heated griddle pan until the pinkness of the fish starts to disappear. Once that happens, turn the fish over and cook again. Some people prefer to eat tuna slightly pink; so cook accordingly to your taste.

Take the sauce and place on top of the fish whilst still warm so that the sauce warms slightly. Serve with vegetables of your choice.
