The simplicity and flavour of this summer dish are fantastic. Buy your tuna steaks about 1cm thick rather than going for massive ones. That way they'll cook quickly, giving you a juicy, silky steak that hasn't had a chance to dry out. If you can't get hold of tuna, then shark and swordfish are reasonably good steak-like alternatives.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
