  • Ingredients

    • 4 fresh tuna steaks
    • 45ml (3tbsp) olive oil
    • 1 large red onion, peeled and chopped
    • 2 x 300g cans cannellini beans, drained
    • 60ml (4tbsp) fresh chopped flat-leaf parsley
    • Juice from one lemon
    • Lemon wedges, to garnish


    • Brush the tuna steaks with some of the olive oil and season with plenty of freshly ground black pepper and a little sea salt. Heat a cast iron skillet or griddle pan until very hot and cook the steaks for 2-3 mins on each side.

    • Meanwhile, heat the rest of the olive oil in a frying pan and fry the red onion for 3-4 mins. Stir in the beans, parsley and lemon juice and cook for a further 1-2 mins until heated through. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

    • Divide the bean salad between four serving plates and top with the tuna steaks. Serve immediately, garnished with lemon wedges.
