Method

 

Soak the crushed wheat in cold water for 30 minutes until the grains swell, then drain.

Place in a medium-based pan, cover with salted water and bring to the boil.

Cook for 20 minutes until tender. Drain and strain under cold running water.

Make the tuna rub – mix parsley, coriander, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper.  Rub on the tuna with a fork.

Heat the oil and sear the tuna for 4 minutes until done, turning once after 2 minutes.

Make the dressing, add to salad and stir.

Tip onto a platter.

Slice the tuna but keep it in its shape and put on salad.

Snap off some whole parsley leaves and sprinkle over.

Tip:
Can also subtitute the  fresh tuna with 2 x 170 g canned in brine that is drained.
