Marinated Tuna


6 shallots, finely sliced
zest and juice of 6 lemons
150 ml olive oil
2 chillies, red or green, halved, deseeded
and diced
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
6 x 125 g tuna fillet, thinly sliced


Try this great dish, which should be made using only really fresh tuna, with steamed sliced new potatoes and a green salad.


1. In a large, low-sided dish mix together the shallots, lemon zest and juice, olive oil, chilli and seasoning. Finally, add the tuna fillets and leave to marinate for 12 hours, turning occasionally.

2. Heat a grill or barbecue to hot and take the tuna from the marinade.

3. Cook the fish for 1 - 2 minutes on each side for rare (4 minutes for well done) and serve at once, drizzled with the remaining marinade.
