Seared Tuna and Quinoa Salad

Say goodbye to boring fish and chips and bland tinned tuna salads, and hello to this beautifully cooked – and packed with flavour – seared tuna salad.


For the tuna:
  • 2 tuna steaks
  • Lifestyle Food Olive Oil
  • ½ lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp Lifestyle Food Paprika
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
For the salad:
  • 1 cup Lifestyle Food Quinoa
  • ½ cup corn kernels
  • 2 baby marrow, cubed
  • ½ avocado
  • 3 tbsp coriander
  • Lettuce
  • ½ lemon
  • Salt and pepper
  • Lifestyle Food Olive Oil


  1. Marinate the tuna steaks in olive oil, lemon juice, paprika, salt, pepper and sesame seeds.
  2. While that marinates boil the quinoa until there are just tiny white dots in the centre. This ensures that they are not overcooked. 
  3. Lightly fry the baby marrow cubes and corn kernels with some olive oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper then mix all of the salad ingredients together.
  4. Heat up a heavy-base pan with a little oil and fry your tuna, sear it so that the inside is still pink.
  5. Serve together and enjoy.
