Day 8: Tuna

Every menu should have fresh tuna! With its firm, rich red meat, you could almost describe this as the ‘cow of the sea’ and like steak, is best seared on the outside, rare in the centre.

The cow of the sea!

This fish has a great flavour which stands on its own or with any number of flavours – Oriental, Mediterranean, spices and chillies – just avoid creamy sauces as this is a slightly oilier fish.

It can be flash grilled, griddled or pan-fried but avoid baking as it will dry out. Tinned tuna is also fab for creating tasty sandwiches, salads, pasta dishes and of course, fishcakes!
