This tasty sandwich covers many flavour bases: fresh, rich, crunchy and zesty. You could cook the tuna steaks on a BBQ for a charred finish or add a dash of wasabi to the lime aioli dressing for a wallop of heat.

Serves 4

4 tuna steaks
8 slices of sourdough bread
1 x cos lettuce
¼ cup sesame oil
½ lime, juiced
½ cup Kewpie mayonnaise or whole egg mayonnaise
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tbs sesame seeds, toasted
Salt and pepper, to season


  • Make the aioli dressing by whisking together 1 tbs sesame oil with the lime juice and zest, crushed garlic clove and mayo. Season with salt. Set aside.
  • Grill your sourdough bread slices for 1-2 minutes on one side only until golden and lightly toasted. Keeping one side “bready” will give your sandwich a bit of bounce. Cover the grilled bread with a clean tea towel to keep them warm while you cook the tuna.
  • Get a frying pan very hot over high heat. Use a pastry brush to generously coat the tuna steaks in sesame oil. Lightly season with salt. Cook for about 30 seconds to 1 minute each side for a raw centre. 
  • Spread the aioli dressing on a warm grilled slice of sourdough. Top with a cos lettuce leaf, the sliced tuna steak and a sprinkling of sesame seeds. Top with one more bread slice. Consume while warm!

This slow cooked pork scotch is a dish that just keeps on giving. Cook it one night alongside a zingy salad and stuff it into rolls the next. It’s packed with flavour, it’s succulent and it’s downright delicious! The acidity from the pickle is perfect for cutting through the richness of the pork.
