Ingredients… serves 10

10 tuna steaks, 100g each (approx)

50g Essential Cuisine Aromatic Stock Base

25ml vegetable oil

1.2kg fine rice noodles, cooked to manufacturer’s instructions

3 limes, juice only

5 cloves of garlic, crushed

25g root ginger, peeled and finely grated

50ml fish sauce

3 red chillies, deseeded and finely chopped

100g roasted peanuts, roughly chopped

50g sesame seeds

100g carrots, julienne

100g spring onions, finely sliced

20g thai basil leaves

20g fresh mint leaves, shredded


1. First marinade the tuna by brushing the Essential Cuisine Aromatic Stock Base on both sides of the steaks, cover and chill for about 1 hour

2. For the salad, in a food processor blend together the lime juice, ginger, fish sauce, chillies and peanuts in fine paste (add a little water if a touch thick)

4. While the tuna is cooking, finish the salad by tossing the noodles, spring onions, basil, carrots and mint together until thoroughly mixed
