• 1 kg baby potatoes
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp whole Szechuan peppercorns, crushed
  • 3 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 200 g radishes, trimmed and coarsely grated
  • 200 g trimmed mange tout, thinly sliced lengthways
  • 0.5 cucumber, trimmed, halved, deseeded and cut into matchsticks
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 400 g tuna steaks


  1. 1

    Put the potatoes in a large pan, cover with cold water and bring to the boil. Cook for 15 minutes, until tender. Drain and cut in half.

  2. 2

    Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together the garlic, 1 tbsp of the rice vinegar, the crushed Szechuan peppercorns and the soy sauce. Set aside.

  3. 3

    Make the salad: mix together the radish, mange tout and cucumber. Drizzle over the remaining rice wine vinegar and season with freshly ground black pepper. Toss to combine.

  4. 4

    Heat the oil in a large frying pan.

  5. 5

    Add the tuna steaks and cook for 2 minutes, then turn over. Pour in the Szechuan dressing, and continue to cook the tuna for a further minute, for medium-rare, or an extra 2-3 minutes for well-done.

  6. 6

    Serve the tuna with the pan juices drizzled over and the potatoes and salad on the side.


    Cook's tip:  you could also flake the cooked tuna and toss it together with the salad and potatoes to enjoy cold.
