Tuna steaks and mini roast potatoes

Son1 loves tuna cheese melt paninis and tuna mayonnaise sandwiches but he had never tried tuna apart from out of a tin, so I thought it was time to change that by serving some tuna steaks. Son1 liked the idea but requested no seasoning on his.

Tuna Steaks
Ingredients (serves 3)

3 tuna steaks
coriander seeds
rock salt
mixed herbs


Crush the coriander seeds, salt, pepper and herbs.
Put the tuna steaks on a chopping board.
Sprinkle on the seasoning.
Drizzle oil over them.
Turn and repeat the last two steps.
Meanwhile preheat a frying pan to a high heat.
Sear the tuna for 3 minutes on each side.
Serve with vegetables and the mini roast potatoes and enjoy.

Mini Roast Potatoes
Ingredients (serves 3)

600g potatoes
15g dripping


Peel the potatoes and cut into small pieces.
Bring a pan of water to the boil.
Boil the potatoes for 5 minutes.
Drain the potatoes.
Preheat fan oven to 180 deg C.
Put the dripping in a roasting tin and heat for a couple of minutes in oven.
Add potatoes to the roasting tin.
Baste with the dripping to coat the potatoes.
Cook for about 30 minutes, turning occasionally.
Serve and enjoy.

Verdict. Son1 enyoyed his plain tuna steak, although a half portion would have suited him better, so these will be featuring in our household again. But he also had a taste of one with seasoning and agreed that was better.  Although I’ll still have to make something different for son2 who isn’t keen on tuna.
