Serves 4


– 1 lemon

– 15cl olive oil

– 1 garlic clove

– 1 onion

– 1 slice tuna

– 5 tomatoes

– 10cl white wine


Allow tuna to marinate for 1h with olive oil and lemon.

Preheat oven, thermostat 7.

Prepare a tomate purée: chop tomatoes, onion and garlic finely, and brown in a little olive oil and white wine. Allow to reduce.

Glaze the tuna in a frying pan, without cooking it.

Place the tuna in an oven dish – cover with the tomato purée, place in oven.

After 4min of cooking, pour marinade on top and continue to cook for another 4mins.

Serve piping hot, with rice.
