So dad and I had a cute lil Sunday dins this evening. He picked up some tuna steaks, which were on offer in Waitrose. We do love ourselves a good tuna steak and we simply can’t say no when its on offer. So in the wise words of my father himself “yummy yummy yummy I’ve got tuna in my tummy and it’s a party for my palate”. Preach it paps.
We served it with a green salad and avo, sweet potato wedges and a tomato salsa. A pretty great Sunday supper if you ask me. For the tuna, I basically did the same last tuna recipe using soy sauce, lime, sesame oil and ginger. Dad and I really fancied a tangy tomato salsa to go with it, so that’s exactly what we did. If I’m honest, I basically just chucked some ingredients together and hoped for the best. I often do this and annoyingly forget to measure anything out. Which is really greatwhen you’re attempting to create a food blog for others to recreate your recipes. Good one, me. So anyway, here’s a rough guide to a pretty delicious tomato salsa.
– 15 cherry tomatoes
– 6-8 leaves of fresh coriander
– 1 tbsp olive oil
– 1 tsp sesame oil
– 1 tbsp white wine or cider vinegar
– 1 tbsp honey
– Zest of half a lime
– Juice of half a lime
– 8-10 drops Tabasco (optional)
1. Chop the tomatoes. I like having a few chunkier pieces, so I chopped half of mine into quarters and the rest into eighths. Leave to one side
2. Finely chop the coriander and mix with the rest of the ingredients in a small bowl, season with salt and pepper.
3. Add in the tomatoes and give it a good old mix. Taste the salsa and adjust the ingredient quantities to your desired taste.
