Tuna Nicoise salad

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.

Benefits: Recover in-between sessions.

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.
