Yellow Thai tuna steak with chilli, red onion and edamame

I wanted to create a tuna steak recipe that was succulent and satisfying rather than being a tasteless thirst pocket. And here it is. Juicy, flash-cooked tuna soused in spicy Thai flavour.
Serves: 1 • Prep time: 5 mins • Cook time: 7 mins • Easy
  • olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons of yellow Thai curry paste
  • 1 fresh tuna steak, cut thick
  • half a red onion, thinly sliced into circles
  • half a white onion finely chopped (or use frozen chopped)
  • small clove of garlic, crushed
  • small red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped (or use frozen chopped
  • handful of frozen edamame beans
  • small handful of fresh parsley or green herbs, chopped a bit
  • sea salt
Place the tuna in a shallow dish, mix a glug of olive oil with the curry paste and brush it liberally over the fish.

Gently fry the onions (both types), garlic and chilli for a couple of minutes, then add the edamame and salt and cook for another 2-3 mins.

Heat a glug of olive oil in a griddle pan until v hot, then sear the tuna for a couple of mins on each side or until cooked to your liking.

Serve the tuna on the spicy vegetables and sprinkle over some parsley or Thai basil

You can tune a guitar but you can't tuna fish. Unless of course you play bass.
