Ingredients
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 limes, zest and juice of
  • 15g pack micro coriander, chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tuna steaks (about 175g each)
  • 1 large ripe mango
  • 3 red chillies
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • Pinch of sugar
Method
  • Toast the cumin seeds in a dry frying pan until you start to smell the aroma coming from them. In a shallow, non-metallic dish, mix half of the lime zest and juice, all of the coriander and 1 tbsp of the olive oil to make a marinade. Season to taste. Add the tuna steaks to the dish and turn to coat in the marinade. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour.

  • To make the mango relish, cut 4 small slices off the mango and set aside. Peel and stone the remainder and cut into small cubes. De-seed and finely chop one of the chillies and mix with the diced mango, onion, sugar and remaining olive oil, lime zest and juice. Season well.

  • Remove the tuna steaks from the marinade and cook on the barbecue for 5-10 minutes, turning once. Halve the remaining chillies. Serve the tuna steaks with the mango salsa and garnish with the halved chillies and slices of mango.
