my special recipe for...Tuna
Steak with Lime and Caper Sauce
the one and only...
The Good Olí Big A.
Si was having a bite to eat pre-show at the Royal Concert
Hall when we had a chat about possible recipes .... The next day I was
delighted to find this pinned up on the office door... One good way to
make sure it was not lost in the hurly burly of the festival!
This is a great summer recipe....try barbecuing the tuna for extra flavour...
This sauce would work well on most fish steaks, try it on Cod, Salmon or
is what you need... for 2 people.
2 fresh Tuna steaks
1 dtsp of butter
Juice from 1 lime
quarter pint of single cream
1 birds eye chilli pepper, finely sliced(optional)
season with salt and a few turns milled pepper
is how you do it...
Start to griddle tuna steaks while in a sauce pan melting
the butter over a reduced heat. Stir in to the melted butter a splash of
red wine vinegar, the cream and the juice from the lime, stir well and add
the chilli and capers. Season to taste and allow to simmer on a low heat
for a minute or two until tuna steaks have been grilled lightly on both
sides and cooked through. Pour sauce over the tuna steaks and serve.
Serve this with... potatoes / vegetables or pasta and pesto, with tomatoes
in a mustard salad dressing.
Wash it down with.. many pints of Guinness
Turn on the cool sounds of... Van the man/Gram Parsons
