    Directions

    1. Sprinkle the tuna steaks with half the lemon juice and season lightly with salt. Heat 2 tbsp of the oil in a large heavy-based frying pan and fry the tuna steaks over medium heat for 2-3 mins on each side. Remove with a spatula and cover to keep warm.
    2. Add the rest of the oil to the pan and fry the onions and garlic for 5-6 mins until softened. Stir in the tarragon, the remaining lemon juice and stock and bring to a boil. Add the cornstarch and simmer, stirring until the sauce has thickened slightly. Add the tomatoes and simmer for 1 more min. Season to taste. Serve the tuna steaks and sauce with rice and lettuce and garnish with lemon slices and tarragon sprigs.
