Grilled tuna steak with avocado salsa

I love a well cooked(pink) tuna steak with a salad. This meal takes 10 min to put together and is packed with goodness. If you want a meal thats a bit more filling serve it with a bowl of sticky rice on the side. 

Serves 2

2 tuna steaks
olive oil
salt and pepper

Marinade (optional)
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp soya
1tsp honey
1/2 lime, juice

Avocado Salsa
2 avocado, roughly chopped into small chunks
1 spring onion, finely sliced
handful of cherry tomatoes, quartered
handful of coriander, finely chopped
1/2 lime, juice
salt and pepper

Coriander sprigs
Wedge of lime

1. Marinade the steaks for an hour at least. 
2. If you don't have time to marinade, which is fine, rub the steaks in olive oil and season with salt and pepper just before grilling.
3. Make the salsa by mixing all the ingredients. 
4. Heat up a riddled pan(preferably) to maximum heat. Grill the tuna steaks for about 1-2 min on each side. You want it to be pink ideally, which is about 1 min each side, but you can cook it to your liking. For well done, grill at least 3 min each side. 
5. Serve the salsa on the plate beside the tuna steak and decorate with a sprig of coriander and lemon wedge.
