 Griddled tuna with bean & tomato salad
2 fresh tuna steaks, about 175g/6oz each
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 large garlic, crushed
1 tbsp chopped rosemary leaves
For the salad
410g can cannellini bean, drained and rinsed
8 cherry tomatoes, quartered
1/2 small ted onion, thinly sliced
50g bag rocket
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp wholegrain mustard
1 tsp honey
  1. Put the tuna in a shallow dish, drizzle over the oil and lemon juice, scatter over the garlic and rosemary. Turn the tuna so its well coated. Cover and put in the fridge for 30 minutes (you can leave it for longer if convenient).
  2. Tip the beans into a large bowl. Toss in the tomatoes, onion and rocket. Put the oil, lemon juice, mustard, honey and salt & pepper in a screw top jar. Seal and put aside.
  3. Heat a cast iron ridged grill pan or frying pan until very hot. Cook the tuna on a moderately high heat for 2 minutes each side - don't overcook or it will be dry.
  4. Shake the dressing. Pour over the salad. Mix. Serve the salad with the tuna on top.
