2 tuna steaks

Pepper for seasoning

1 tbs olive oil


juice of 1 lime

chilli flakes

1 tsp of coriander

1 clove of garlic


Make the marinade in a bowl by combining the juice of 1 lime, the chilli flakes, 1 teaspoon of coriander and 1 clove of garlic.

Place the tuna steaks in the marinade and turn to coat. Marinate for at least 30 minutes in the fridge.

Heat a cast-iron griddle pan. Brush the tuna steaks with the oil and season with freshly ground black pepper. Cook for 2-3 mins on each side until the steaks are cooked to your liking. Do not overcook.

The marinated chilli and lime tuna steaks are delicious served with salad.

Keep smiling 🙂

    Now this looks amazing, oh wow! And I know that my husband will love it. I am going to give this a go this week =)

  23. Lin says:

    If in a hurry this also works well. Just pan fry tuna. I use coconut oil the for the last minute or so add teaspoon of chilli jelly (or chilli dipping sauce) and stir round flipping the tuna over. This gives a nice sticky tasty tuna steak.

  24. I am not a lover of tuna either but would try this recipe with some other type of fish. Thanks!

  25. Maddie says:

    Looks super yummy. I like fish.

  26. I always overcook tuna steaks because I’m so afraid of undercooking it! Tuna steaks with fresh arugula salad is one of my most favorite things to eat (even when I make it too dry)!!!
