Chargrilled yellowfin tuna with a chickpea Dhukah salad


  • Heat a little oil in a heavy-bottomed non-stick pan and cook the salmon with a little salt and crunched-up lime leaves for a few minutes.
  • Then turn the salmon over and add the chickpeas, a good squeeze of fresh lime juice and a little fresh oil to the pan. Remove the salmon when seared and continue cooking the chickpeas.
  • To make the dressing, mix together the yoghurt, soy and 25 ml lime juice. Taste for seasoning.
  • To serve, arrange the lettuce on individual plates with the chickpeas, a little salt, the tomatoes and red onion. Cut the salmon in half and place on top. Then drizzle the dressing over and sprinkle with a little Dhukkah and a little fresh oil.
