Seared Tuna Skewers with Sweet Potato Mash and Wild Garlic Seared Tuna Skewers with Sweet Potato Mash and Wild Garlic

Such a perfectly balanced, tasty and nutritious meal. Simple to make (with or without the skewers), but with just gives it the edge when you serve it up!

  1. Brush the tuna steaks liberally with the pomegranate molasses. This is not absolutely necessary, but if you have time, cover and leave to marinate in the fridge for a couple of hours (if not, then leave for the time it takes you to prep the rest of the meal)
  2. In the meantime, peel and chop the sweet potatoes and boil for 15/20 minutes, until they're nice and soft. Drain, season and mash with a little olive oil and and set aside (with a lid to keep warm). Whilst they're cooking, thinly slice the garlic and put the greens in a steamer basket
  3. Finally, heat some olive oil in a pan and when it's nice and hot, sear the tuns steaks for just a minute on eash side and immediately set aside. Steam the greens for just a minute or so until they wilt and fry the garlic in the butter until it's nicely browning. Then carve the tuna into cubes, feed onto four skewers and serve with the mash and greens on the side. Finish with the garlic butter over the mash and a little more molassess over the tuna

There's lots of fish, beans and vegetables! Happy cooking!
