Spicy Seared Tuna Salad
This recipe was developed by the lovely Michelle Parkin for @pesto_princess. Easy, quick and delicious.
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 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.
