Tuna steaks with cucumber relish

Does a nice tuna steak served with a Cucumber Relish sound good to you? Well this recipe could be just what you're looking for. Just add a lovely green mixed salad and voilĂ  ....... a lovely tasting meal.

Serves Four
Carb count per serving 2g
3 tbsp olive oil
4 tuna steaks, about 140g/5oz each
For the relish
½ cucumber
2 spring onions, finely chopped
1 medium tomato, finely chopped
½ large red chilli, seeded and finely chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp chopped parsley
1 tbsp lime or lemon juice

1, Put the oil into a food bag and add the tuna steaks. Rub well together and leave for 30 mins while you make the relish. Peel the cucumber, halve lengthways and scoop out the seeds. Chop the flesh into a small dice. Mix with the rest of the ingredients, seasoning to taste. Set aside.
2.To griddle/ Grill: heat the pan/grill to hot, then cook the steaks, turning after 2 mins, and cooking for another 2 mins each side depending on the thickness of the steaks. Meaty fish is best served slightly ‘pink’. Remove the steaks from the heat allow to stand for 3-5 mins, then spoon over the relish and serve.

Tip - if BBQ'ing When the grill is ready to cook, remove the fish from the bag, dabbing off excess oil. Season and cook for barely 2 mins each side.

Serve with a green mixed salad ..... good tasting food.
