For the salad

  • 100 g wild rocket
  • 1 large courgette sliced thinly
  • 2 avocados pitted, peeled and sliced
  • 2 tuna steaks 250g each

For the dressing

For the tuna marinade


  • For the marinade: mix together the soy sauce and Pesto Princess Coriander & Chilli Pesto. Pour over the tuna steaks and leave to marinade at room temperature for about 30 minutes
  • Make the dressing by combining the olive oil, red onion, rice vinegar, Pesto Princess Coriander & Chilli Pesto and seasoning in a bowl and whisk until it thickens.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a non-stick pan over high heat. Sear the tuna for about 2 minutes per side then transfer to a cutting board and slice into thin slices.
  • In a medium bowl, toss the wild rocket and zucchini with 3-4 tablespoons of dressing. Place a large handful of salad onto a plate and top with sliced tuna and avocado. Drizzle with a little more dressing and serve with a crisp white wine.
