Take advantage of the fresh tuna in summer and whip up a basil dressing to go with it!

You will need:

Lamb Brand ground black pepper

Asparagus, 1 bunch, trimmed

Cherry tomatoes, 2 handfuls (quartered)

Fresh Basil, 1 Bunch (baby leaves to one side)

Black olives, one handful (stones removed)

Extra virgin olive oil

Lemon, 1

Sea salt

Tuna steaks, 2  (from sustainable sources).

Fat-free natural yoghurt, 2 tbsp. 

All you have to do is:

1.Heat a griddle pan until it gets really hot then put your asparagus in it. 

2.Place a heavy saucepan on top so that it presses the spears right down on to the bars. Cook them for 2 minutes, turning them halfway through, until they have lovely charred marks.

3.Pop the asparagus on a board and chop them in half at an angle.

4.Put the asparagus in a bowl with your tomatoes, half the basil leaves, the olives, a splash of oil and a squeeze of lemon juice. 

5.Season, then toss it all together and put it to one side while you get the fish ready.

6.Rub your tuna steaks with a little bit of oil and season them. 

7.Sear them for about a minute on each side in the griddle pan for a rare steak – leave them for 2 minutes on each side if you prefer them cooked medium, or 3 to 4 minutes each side if you like them well done.

8.Pound the remaining basil in a pestle and mortar then mix in the yoghurt. 

9.Season and add some more lemon juice to taste.

10.Put the salad on a plate, then tear the tuna into strips and pop them on top.

11.Spoon over some of the basil dressing and scatter over the baby basil leaves.

Mini party wraps that everyone will enjoy!

WRAPS

LAMB BRAND Corn Flour 2 cups

LAMB BRAND table salt 1 tsp

Hot water 1 1/4 cup plus 2 to 3 tablespoons

Butter 1 tsp

 

All you have to do is:

1.Mix the corn flour and salt in a medium sized bowl.

2.Place 1 1/4 cups of boiling water and the butter in a pan on slow heat and stir until butter is melted.

3.Pour this mixture into the bowl of corn flour and mix with a fork.

4.After a couple of minutes mixture should be cool enough to touch, mix the dough with your hands. The dough will probably be a little dry. Add hot water one teaspoon at a time until the dough stays together and doesn't crumble apart.

5.Knead the dough for one or two minutes. Play with the consistency by adding more water if needed. What you want is a dough that is moist enough to stay together but not too sticky.

6.Divide the dough in balls (depending on the wrap size required) using a rolling pin open the balls on a plastic film about 2mm thick, so that it won't get stuck to the working surface.

7.Place your tortilla in the preheated cast iron pan and cook for 45 seconds to a minute then turn over and cook for another 45 seconds or longer.

8.Place cooked tortillas in foil and cover with a clean kitchen towel to keep warm. 

9.Paste each tortilla with a good amount of lentil & carrot dip & roll up and cut into mini wheels to serve as a snack or during a party.
