3 tsp olive oil
500g Yellowfin tuna steak
450g mixed tomatoes
1 handful large flat-leaf parsley
1 garlic clove
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp capers
1 loaf crusty bread


Half the mixed tomatoes, or slice if large  - we used a mixture of red and gold santini, rosa, green tiger and jester. Finely chop the garlic cloves. Drain the capers. Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a large, non-stick frying pan.

  1. Season the tuna steaks and add to the pan.
  2. Cook for 2-3 minutes each side, so that the tuna is rare in the centre.
  3. Remove the fish from the pan and cut it into chunky pieces.
  4. Arrange on a platter with the tomatoes and parsley.
  5. Add the remaining oil to the pan, with the garlic.
  6. Sizzle for a minute, remove from the heat and stir in the balsamic vinegar and capers.
  7. Spoon over the tuna and tomatoes, and serve with crusty bread.
