  • 2 tb Chopped chives

add to the chopped ingredients. Pour over a generous amount of olive oil,
season with salt and pepper and set aside.

Grill the tuna steaks for two minutes on each side, or longer if you don't
want them too underdone. Remember that the fish will continue cooking a

on both sides and allow to rest in a warm oven.

To serve, divide the salsa equally on four plates, place the tuna steaks on
top, sprinkle with the chives and coriander and serve with half a lemon or
