Ingredients
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 red chilli, finely diced
  • Olive oil
  • 1 medium butternut squash, peeled and cut into chips
  • 1 red onion, peeled and cut into thick slices
  • 2 tuna steaks
  • Fresh coriander
Method
  • To make this marinade, whisk the lime juice, chilli and a drizzle of olive oil.

  • Pre-heat a griddle pan. Coat the squash and onion in half the marinade, then cook on the griddle plan for 6 to 8 minutes until soft, turning occasionally to get an even colour.

  • Rub the remaining marinade over the tuna and put on the griddle plan. Sear for 2 minutes on each side for a ‘pink’ result, or for 4 to 6 minutes on each side if you prefer fish well done.

  • Roughly tear the coriander leaves and scatter over the chargrilled vegetables. Serve the tuna with the vegetables, drizzled with any leftover marinade.
