The Flavour of Lime (part 2)

I already shared with you a dessert recipe that uses lime...
Now, here is a savoury recipe.. perfect for a sunny afternoon!!..
Seared Tuna with Lime Crust


375g Tuna fillets
1 tbsp of grated lime rind
1/3 cup of lime juice
1/4 cup of finely chopped fresh dill
2 tbsp of chopped fresh parsley
2 small red chillies, seeded and chopped
2 tbsp of olive oil
salt and pepper
400g of spaghetti
some Arugula leaves

Place the tune in a shallow dish. Combine the lime rind, lime juice, dill, parsley, chilli, olive oil, salt and pepper and pour over the tuna to coat. Refrigerate for 15 mins. Meanwhile cook the pasta until al dente. Heat olive oil in a frying pan over high heat, then remove the tuna from the marinade and cook for one min. on each side until well seared. Then slice and place the tuna on top of the pasta, use some of the marinade to give it some flavour and top with the arugula leaves. Serves 4.


  1. Sounds good. I will try as a special later this week.
