  • sesame seeds 10g
  • olive oil 1 tablespoon


Ingredients for roast

  • red bell pepper 1 piece
  • yellow bell pepper 1 piece

  • shelled edamame 100g

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan. Cut the peppers into chunks. Peel the carrot and slice it. Add peppers and carrot to a lined baking tray, drizzle with oil, and roast for 25 minutes until browned.
  2. Pat the tuna steaks dry with kitchen paper. Season with salt and pepper. Cover the steaks in sesame seeds, pressing them firmly into the surface. Set aside.
  3. Combine all of the dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Adjust the amount of chilli flakes and lime juice to your liking. Thinly slice the spring onions and mix them into the dressing.
  4. Season the roasted vegetables with salt. Mix with the drained edamame beans, chopped coriander and sliced green chilli. Keep warm.
  5. Heat a non-stick pan over a medium heat with a little oil. Once hot, add the sesame tuna steaks and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side until cooked to your liking. Set aside to rest, then slice. 
  6. Divide the warm roasted vegetables among plates. Arrange the sliced tuna on top. Drizzle with dressing.
