    I recently read about the health benefits of macadamia nuts so I thought I’d share one of my favourite recipes that combines them with barbecued tuna. It's a great healthy summer recipe!

    Serves: 4 

    • 2 cups diced pawpaw
    • 1/2 red onion, diced
    • 1 red capsicum, diced
    • 1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander
    • 2 tablespoons lime juice
    • 1/4 teaspoon chilli paste, or to taste
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 4 (170g) tuna steaks
    • 1/4 cup (65ml) extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 pinch salt and pepper to taste
    • 3 eggs
    • 1/2 cup (60g) chopped macadamia nuts

    Preparation:45min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:55min 

    1. Combine the pawpaw, onion and red capsicum in a bowl. Add the coriander, lime juice, garlic and chilli paste. Toss to combine, then refrigerate until ready to serve.
    2. Preheat a barbecue for high heat and lightly oil grate.
    3. Brush the tuna steaks with olive oil then season with salt and pepper. Whisk the eggs in a shallow bowl until smooth. Dip the tuna steaks in the egg and allow excess egg to run off. Press into the macadamia nuts.
    4. Cook the tuna steaks on the preheated barbecue to your desired degree of doneness. Serve with the pawpaw salsa.
