For this summery fish recipe, I wanted to propose an unusual breading. The bitter and peppery taste of rocket pairs perfectly with the warm and earthy touch of turmeric. A healthy and classy dish which is also delicious and easy to prepare!

Did you know? Black pepper enhances the properties and benefits of turmeric powder; this is why it’s important to freshly grind the pepper specifically for this recipe.

Serves: 2 | Preparation time: 5 mins | Cooking time: 2-3 mins

Tuna steaks, fresh: 2 (about 400 g)
Rocket: 60 g
Crackers or breadsticks: 2 to 3
Eggs: 1
(optional) Almonds, peeled: about 1 tbsp
Turmeric powder: 1 Tsp
Extra virgin olive oil: to taste
Black pepper, in grains: to taste
Salt: to taste
Method

Set aside some rocket leaves for garnishing. Put the remaining rocket in a food processor, along with the crackers, 1 tbsp of olive oil, 1 tsp of turmeric powder, salt and pepper to taste. Add the almonds to the rest of the ingredients if you normally find the rocket to be a bit too bitter for your taste. Process until the ingredients are blended together in a crumbly mixture.

Spread the rocket crumbs on a large plate and beat up the egg in a shallow bowl.

Dip the tuna steaks in the egg and then lay them on the crumbs. Gently press the steaks down with your fingers to ensure a thorough and homogeneous breading.

Fry the steaks for about 2 minutes on each side in a large pan with 2 tbsp of olive oil. Serve warm on a bed or rocket leaves, with a glass of chilled Prosecco.

Buon appetito!

Tip: Do not overcook the tuna: it would become dry and chewy. If the centre of the meat is still red or pink, then the tuna is cooked to perfection and still retains some nutritional elements that would be otherwise lost, like the Omega 3.

EXCELLENT SERVICE, HAVE USED PRODUCT BEFORE , NICE IF YOU LIKE LEMON INFUSED OIL

Classic wine from Piedmont

A classic gem from my favourite region x wine. Never simple, full of amazing flavour and yet very drinkable with all kinds of food. Wine as it should be

A TRULY GREAT OLIVE OIl

I am a regular contributor to a renowned online health newsletter so i know well the risks of buying blended olive oils of doubtful origin: either in the supermarket or online...on the other hand this superb oil is not only beautifully packaged but also has the genuine, delicious flavour of the real McCoy!...another bonus is this particular oil is not ultra finely filtered which is by far the best way to preserve all of the essential nutrients...that's not to say it is cloudy, just not crystal clear...finally once you have purchased the initial 500ml bottle(s) to use on the table to serve frpm, it's available in a variety of larger sized tins to top up your bottle enabling worthwhile savings...all in all an outstanding product and highly recommended by this regular user!...

Best Panettone EVER

This is the best panettone I have ever eaten (and I 've eaten a lot because I love panettone). Insanely delicious and chocolate heaven!!

Fantastic vinegar!!!

I love Pinot Grigio wine, so I decided to try it as a condiment as well... it is a fantastic product enhancing any dish you flavour with it. I dash it on my grilled veggies, it is just so yummy!!!!!

Thank you very much for your lovely comment. All the best from the whole Agrumia team!!!
