Tuna Salsa Verde

I was really craving fish tonight so I decided to make Jamie's Tuna Salsa Verde! Tuna is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids which makes it perfect for dinner because these are the healthy fats!

Duration: 15 minutes

The ingredients for 1 serving:

  • 80 gr spelt pasta
  • 1 ripe tomato
  • 1 red paprika
  • Handful arugula
  • 1 Tuna steak
  • 1/2 ts oregano
  • 1/2 ts fennel seed
  • 10 gr parmesan cheese
  • 1 lemon
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & Pepper

  • 1/2 bunch fresh mint and parsley
  • 2 anchovy fillets
  • 1 ts capers
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 ts mustard
  • 1 ts white wine vinegar

What you do:
  1. Cook the pasta as directed on the package.
  2. For the salsa, put the mint leaves and parsley in your food processor with the juice of half a lemon. Add the garlic clove, anchovy fillets, capers, extra virgin olive oil, mustard and white wine vinegar. Chop finely until it's somewhat smooth. Season with salt & pepper, dilute with 1 tablespoon of water and put aside.
  3. Remove the seeds from the paprika. Cut the tomato and paprika into pieces and put them in a bowl with the arugula. 
  4. Rub the tuna steaks with pepper, salt, oregano and fennel seeds. Sprinkle over 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil each side and grill them for about 1 and a half minute each side. The tuna steak needs to be pink on the inside.
  5. Drain the water from the pasta and make sure you save 1/2 cup of cooking water. Mix the pasta with the tomato mixture and about halve of the salsa. If you want you can add some cooking water to make it somewhat more creamy. Put it on a plate. Put the tuna steak on top with the extra salsa and serve with some lemon parts on the side.
