Firstly a very happy birthday to my lovely sister and Dad, both born on the same day, albeit several years apart!!!
Today, an unusual Tuesday day off, all domestics done so a day of pottering around and some tasty food.
For my lunch I have made something incredibly healthy, but super lovely! I will dedicate this to the birthday girl…. I think she’d love it.
Tuna Ceviche with Charred Lettuce and Avocado
This beautiful plate of food comes from the Madelaine Shaw book ‘Ready, Steady, Glow’. The fresh tuna sat in a little bowl with some fresh ginger, lime juice, soy and sesame oil, while I charred some lettuce and mashed some avocado with some chilli. Sprinkled with some toasted sesame seeds and spring onion for some crunch and red chilli for heat, this was a very vibrant and happy lunch.
I am currently writing a little book for a friends upcoming birthday and this will definitely make the cut, with maybe a few minor tweaks.
Tonight I am looking at some fish with a spicy aubergine mush….. fingers crossed.
