Tuna steak is high in protein and omega 3 oils to help muscle recovery.
Eggs also provide protein and are a good source of iron to boost the development of red blood cells. Green beans are high in anti-oxidants to boost the immune system.

Ingredients: Serves 2
- 2 tuna steaks
- 3-4 tbsp. sesame seeds
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 2 baby gem lettuce, roughly chopped
- 8-10 anchovies (from the tin)
- 4 eggs, quartered
- 200g new potatoes, cooked and halved
- 4 tomatoes, quartered
- 100g green beans, cooked, sliced
- 6 basil leaves, chopped
- 4 tbsp. black olives, sliced
- Juice and zest of 1 lemon
Start by placing the sesame seeds onto a plate and placing the tuna into them. You want to get a liberal coating all over the tuna steaks.
Now in a large bowl combine the remaining ingredients with 1 tbsp. of olive oil.
Heat a sauté pan over a medium heat and add the olive oil and tuna steaks.
Cook the tuna for 1 minute on each side, ensuring the crust does not burn.
Once cooked slice the tuna and serve with the salad.
