Asian tuna with sweet and sour sauce

Elaboration process:

  1. Place the slices of tuna into a bowl and cover with the oil and season with salt and pepper. In a food processor, combine the garlic with the ginger, chilies, shallots, turmeric and almonds and blend until combined.
  2. Combine the ingredients for the sauce leaving the curry leaves and the cherry tomatoes aside. Heat a fry pan (large enough to fit all the tuna steaks) on medium to high heat and sear off the tuna on each side for 20 seconds. Remove the tuna and set aside.
  3. Add in the remaining oil from the tuna and fry off the paste, curry leaves and the cherry tomatoes for 2 minutes. Pour in the sauce and bring to a simmer. Place the tuna slices back into the sauce and simmer for 3-4 minutes until the tuna is just cooked through. Serve with fresh coriander.
