We’ve used ready-marinated tuna to create a quick and easy summery dinner recipe for two. If you want to make it a more filling meal, serve with brown rice too.


  • The Saucy Fish Company Sweet Soy & Chilli Seasoned Tuna Steaks, avaialble from Tesco, or similar
  • ½ cucumber, sliced into matchsticks
  • 100g beansprouts
  • 1 green chilli, finely sliced into rounds
  • 1 tbsp Very Lazy Ginger, chopped
  • Small bunch of fresh coriander, leaves picked
  • Juice of 1 lime, plus wedges to serve
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil


  1. Cut the tuna into 2cm chunks and thread equal amounts onto 4 metal or soaked wooden skewers. Set aside.
  2. For the slaw, toss the cucumber, beansprouts, chilli, ginger, coriander leaves and lime juice, then drizzle with most of the soy and chilli sauce. Set aside.
  3. Heat a griddle pan over a medium-high heat, brush the tuna skewers with the sesame oil, then sear for 1 minute, turning, until charred on the outside and pink in the centre. Serve with the slaw, a squeeze of lime juice, lime wedges and the remaining soy and chilli sauce.
