Seared Tuna with Late Summer Salsa

September 21st, 2010

Tuna steak with salsa

It’s that time of year again when we’re not quite sure if we’re still in summer or have slipped into autumn. Just as I think it’s time to start flicking on the heating and baking crumbles we get a warm sunny day and it seems as though summer is hanging on for another day. But of course, autumn really is just around the corner so before we say goodbye to summer completely let’s enjoy a few more summary dishes on the warmer days.

Tuna steaks just need searing in a hot pan for a minute or so on each side (depending on how thick the steaks are and how pink you like them) so they’re really quick to cook. I love them with basmati rice but this salsa I mixed up using tomatoes, radishes, cucumber and avocado is really good too; lovely and fresh with a touch of pepperiness from the radishes. Definitely a keeper, this recipe!

      Gorgeous. I love salsa with a little hint of fruitiness too – mango is great with the red onion. Yum!
