Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / 400 F / Gas Mark 6.
  2. First make the puree by boiling the frozen peas and frying the finely chopped onion with a little olive oil until soft and translucent.
  3. Add the cooked peas and onions, a knob of butter and a handful of fresh mint to a food processor until it forms a thick puree and set to one side.
  4. Then make your crust by mixing oatmeal or ground oats with the flaxseed, herbs, garlic, a splash of olive oil and lemon zest then season with salt and pepper and mix thoroughly.
  5. Press the tuna steaks into the mix so they are well covered on both sides then place on a baking tray in the oven for about 10-15 mins or until golden.
  6. Serve the tuna steak on top of the pea puree then sit back and admire your handiwork! Masterchef eat your heart out!
Recipe Notes

Tip – while the tuna’s baking, get some more veg on, this dish is great with half a sweet potato jacket, sautéed kale and broccoli
