A new recipe
Earlier in the day we visited our fish lady in the port to see what fresh fish she had. We went with tuna steaks, which we would prepare with a new recipe we had found. First, little wedges of rosemary, thinly sliced garlic and fresh chilli were poked into nine incisions made in each steak. Then, into a pot just big enough to take the steaks went a bit of olive oil, the remaining rosemary, garlic and chilli, along with oregano, a cinnamon stick, capers, six anchovies, a little fresh tomato, a small can of really good plum tomatoes, and salt and pepper. Once this mixture was brought to a boil, the tuna was added, totally submerged in the sauce, and all left to simmer for 25 minutes. And that's it! It was delicious. The recipe is Jamie Oliver's from an Italian nonna (grandmother). These are the best recipes. We will add the leftovers to pasta to make tomorrow's dinner.
