Hello Turkey! Back to the Middle East. Tuna and olive mash

2 Aug

A quick and easy start to a month of Turkish cooking. We returned to the recipes of Claudia Roden, I didn’t really associate fish like Tuna with Turkey but this appealed. A nice change from last month’s cheese fest!

Tuna steaks were seasoned and a little lemon squeezed over them. I cooked and mashed potatoes, then stirred in olive oil generously. Seasoned. Added parsley and chopped spring onion.  I normally like my mash really creamy but the olive oil was a treat as something different.

The tuna steaks were cooked in a hot oil for about minute each side (I didn’t quite manage to keep it rare) then served with oil, parsley and lemon dressing, the mash and some boiled veg.

Tasty and light Mr M gave it 7.5.
