  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 2 clove/s garlic, finely chopped
  • 270g pack Cherry Vine Tomatoes, halved
  • 400g can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 100ml chicken stock
  • 2 tsp Cooks’ Ingredients Harissa Paste with Lemon
  • ½ x 25g pack flat leaf parsley, leaves finely chopped
  • 2 tuna steaks (100-120g each)
  • ½ lemon, cut into wedges (optional)


  1. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the shallot, garlic and a large pinch of salt, then fry for 2-3 minutes until starting to soften.

  2. Add the tomatoes, cook for 1 minute, then stir in the chickpeas, stock and harissa. Simmer for 5 minutes or until the liquid has reduced a little and the chickpeas are saucy. Stir in the parsley.

  3. Meanwhile, heat another frying pan with the remaining 1 tbsp oil over a medium-high heat. Season the tuna steaks with salt and fry for 2 minutes on each side or longer until cooked to your liking. Divide the tomatoes and chickpeas between 2 shallow bowls and top with the seared tuna steaks. Sprinkle over some freshly ground black pepper and serve with lemon wedges, if liked.
