This delicious salad comes from Kylemore as part of its Healthy Heart Month promotion. Fresh tuna is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, offering a boost to heart health as well as improving concentration and memory.
4 fresh tuna steaks
4 tbsp soy sauce
2 fresh red chillies, finely chopped
4 tbsp freshly chopped coriander
Juice and zest of one lemon
320g sushi rice
100g pickled daikon root
8 sheets of nori
2 red peppers
35g pickled ginger, cut into thin strips
4 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tbsp soy sauce
*If you can’t find all of these ingredients in your local supermarket, you will be able to source them from an Asian supermarket.
Mix the soy sauce, chillies, coriander, lemon juice, and zest together in a large dish. Add the tuna and marinate for at least an hour, or overnight if possible.
Cook the sushi rice, adding the rice vinegar and soy sauce. When cooked add the sliced daikon, nori, red pepper, and pickled ginger. Set aside to cool before serving onto four plates.
Remove tuna from marinade. Chargrill for approximately two minutes per side, or to your liking.
Top the plated rice with the warm tuna steak and chopped coriander to garnish.
