Cracked black pepper
1 tuna steak 150-200g
1tbs vegetable oil
Knob of butter
Splash of olive oil
150g tagliatelle verdi, cooked, enough to make nests
Cream, double or whipping
Fresh basil, chopped
Fennel to garnish
Press cracked pepper liberally over one side of the tuna steak. Heat the vegetable searing skillet over a high flame until just smoking. Place steak in searing pan and colour both sides lightly.
Transfer tuna steak to oven at 180ºC continue to cook for 1-5 minutes depending on preference.
Melt butter and oil in a pan, add tagliatelle, tossing to avoid sticking. Add prawns, cream and basil, tossing and stirring continually. Heat until cream thickens, stir in a splash of lime. Season.
Place a nest of tagliatelle on plate, put tuna steak on top. Garnish with fennel.
