    1. Place the rice and 2 cups (500ml) water in a pot and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer 45 minutes.
    2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a frypan over medium heat. Stir in onion and cook until tender. Season with thyme and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Gently stir into the cooked rice.
    3. Place the edamame in separate pot with enough water to cover and bring to a boil. Cook 5 minutes, or until tender. Mix into the rice.
    4. Heat remaining olive oil in a frypan. Rub tuna with remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper and salt. Place tuna in the frypan and cook to desired doneness. Set aside, and keep warm.
    5. Place shallots in frypan. Increase heat to high, and pour in 3/4 cup (190ml) water. Cook until liquid is reduced to about 1/2 cup, then stir in chives, orange zest and orange juice. Arrange fish over the rice and drizzle with the sauce to serve.
