Serves: 4 Preparation time: 15 mins Cooking time: 8 mins



  • 4 tuna steaks
  • 2 tbsp Filippo Berio Olive Oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice


  • 12 black olives, pitted
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 8 tbsp Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 large vine-ripened tomatoes, skinned


  1. Place the tuna steaks into a shallow dish, mix the olive oil and lemon juice together with a little seasoning, pour over the steaks and leave to marinate for 15 minutes whilst making the sauce.
  2. Put all the ingredients for the sauce into a blender or food processor and blend together, transfer to a pan and heat gently.
  3. Place the tuna on a pre-heated barbecue, hot enough to sear the fish for 3 minutes until the fish begins to mark. Use a large fish slice to turn the steak and cook for a further 2-3 minutes until well-marked (this will depend on the thickness of the steaks).
  4. Serve with warm tomato and olive sauce.
