Summer is the season for seafood, especially if it is sustainably sourced, fresh and delicately seasoned. This is the perfect lunchtime recipe to be shared with friends, family, and a light, crisp Pinot Noir of course!  

 

- WHAT YOU WILL NEED -

  • Zest from 2 lemons
  • ¼ cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp NEW CERAMIC BLACK PEPPERCORNS GRINDER
  • Extra olive oil for fish
  • 2-3 tuna pieces, fresh
  • Baby potatoes for serving

- METHOD -

Toss all the crust ingredients together in a bowl, and mix well to combine. Place the tuna pieces in a baking dish and top each piece with 1-2 tsp of the crust mixture. Drizzle a little extra olive oil over the fish before placing the baking dish under the grill for 6-8 minutes, or until just cooked. Remove from oven and top each piece of tuna with a slice of lemon, then plate up and serve with herbed baby potatoes. Season to taste.
