Griddled sesame tuna with charred lettuce and avocado

A day relaxing in the garden today, reading books and topping up my vitamin d levels! I made this lovely lunch which is based on a recipe I’ve made many times for a ceviche style tuna. I really fancied a sesame crunch to it so came up with this…First up I mashed an avocado with lime juice and a little red chilli.I then sprinkled white and black sesame seeds on a plate and pressed some lovely fresh tuna into them to coat.I chopped up some radishes, cherry tomatoes and a raw beetroot.I quarter a sweet cos lettuce.And I mixed lime juice with some soy sauce and chilli flakes.The tuna was griddled for a minute on each side to toast the sesame seeds and then chopped into thick slices. I popped the lettuce onto the griddle pan for 30 secs each side- you wouldn’t believe how tasty lettuce is when simply charred, no oil required.And there you have it! Light but packing a real punch, a delicious garden lunch!
