I'm going to be brave and try cooking Tuna steak next week.

Anyone got a healthy idea of what to do with them - a nice sauce to go with them!?!?!?!

I've never done fish before so this is all new to me.

So come on, fish lovers out there, share your best recipes with me. Plleeaaasssssseeeeeeee!

I don't think yu really need a sauce, just a simple dressing. Why not try olive oil, corriandar and lime and S&P.

marinate in sesame oil, chilli, garlic, ginger, corriander, fish sauce, and soy sauce and then grill.

Squeeze a bit of lime juice over at the end (if you marinate in lime it will cook the fish iirc).

Your house will smell of Thailand!

sorry to be thick - what does iirc mean?

Very easy to cook! (Well, so DH says anyway!) He usually griddles them with lots of black pepper and extra virgin olive oil. As cardy says, I don't think you need a sauce with them. We usually have them cooked as above with maybe a bit of chili oil bunged in for good measure, served with some steamed veggies and either boiled potatoes or potato wedges. Yum - making me hungry!

iirc - I think it's "if I recall correctly" - ?

as kando says - just griddled they are great. I serve with new potatoes crushed with a squeeze of lemon, olive oil and chives.

kando - doesn't it taste awfully dry???? I wouldn't serve up a plain chicken breast with veggies and potatoes (Not boiled ones anyway) without a bit of gravy or something to make it more moist.

Doesn't the same apply to tuna steaks?

How does the lime cook the tuna?

would it taste nice if I mixed some chives and lemon / lime with creme fresh and put it on top?

No, I don't find it dry at all. They are quite juicy, but I suppose it depends on how you cook them.

Another suggestion (as I had this last night) is once the tuna is cooked (I like it pink in the middle) is to use it in a salad nicoise...just add salad, hard boiled eggs, olives and salad dressing. Don't over ccok the tuna so is deson't dry out.
