Lime and Basil Grilled Tuna Steaks

Are you ready to take your summer grilling to the next level with a dish that’s both delicious and packed with gut-healthy goodness?

1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil (plus extra for drizzling)
1 Lime juiced)
1/4 cup Basil Leaves (chopped, plus extra for garnish)
1 Garlic (clove, minced)
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
340 grams Tuna Steak
1 Tomato (large, chopped)
1 Cucumber (chopped)
1/2 Lemon (juiced)
Sea Salt & Black Pepper (to taste)

1. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, lime juice, basil, garlic, salt and pepper.
Mix well to combine.
2. Add the tuna steaks to a ziploc bag and pour in the marinade. Shake well then store in the fridge while you prep the rest.
Turn the grill off and leave the fish inside so it stays warm.
3. Combine the diced tomato and cucumber together in a bowl. Drizzle with a bit of olive oil, lemon juice and season with sea salt and black pepper to taste. Set aside.
4. Preheat the grill over medium heat.
5. Grill the steaks for about 4 minutes per side, or until they are cooked to your liking.
6. Remove fish from the grill. Plate on a bed of the cucumber tomato salad and garnish with basil. Enjoy!

Use marlin, salmon or swordfish steaks instead.
Marinate the tuna steaks up to 24 hours in advance for maximum flavour.
Serve with a side of cauliflower rice.
