Ingredients

  • 5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
  • ½ tsp chopped thyme
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon

  • 5 small Yukon Gold potatoes, scrubbed
  • Salt
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise

  • 14 oz (400g) sushi-grade tuna steak

Directions

1. Mix 4 tbsp of the olive oil, thyme, and zest together. Set aside.

2. Boil the potatoes about 25 minutes until tender. Drain, cool, peel, and cut into thick slices. Place in a bowl. Drizzle with the remaining 1 tbsp olive oil, mix with mayonnaise, and season with salt.

3. Heat the vegetable oil in a small skillet over high heat. Fry the capers about 2 minutes, until crispy. Drain on paper towels.
