Sometimes little sisters are very nice and will cook lovely things for you. Just like Laura did for me today!

I came back home and I had lunch with a fresh tuna steak in a crispy and crunchy almond's topping. Laura served it with fresh tomatoes and a drizzle of olive oil. This is what I would call the perfect summer lunch and so very tasty indeed!

Thank you Laura! Please make it again for me πŸ™‚

Put 6 tbsp of olive oil in a pan and cook the fish over a high heat turning it on both sides. Make sure you don't overcook the fish. It should not take longer than 2-3 minutes each side, this depends on the thickness of the steak. Make sure it is still pink in the middle.

    Hi Alida,

    Sisters are great, especially sister’s that cook for you. I sadly only had brothers, no sisters. But my sister-in-laws are just like my real sisters, love them both. What a yummy lunch Laura made for you. Tuna steaks are really wonderful, especially with the Almond Batter topping on it. Delish…I also love the capers surrounded by the fresh tomatoes. A very nutritious lunch. Great recipe! Your sister Laura is so cute in her outfit. Thanks for sharing …….Have a terrific day!
