Tuna Sauce Made With Fresh Coriander

I was not sure what to call this – tuna sauce, or sauce for tuna? But, which ever term you prefer please do make this. It is the perfect topping for seared tuna.

I am splitting up with my weather App! A few weekends ago I wanted to do a load of laundry. I have a jersey and some pool towels that need to be washed. We woke up on the Saturday morning and I checked the weather app. Rain was predicted so I decided to wait until the following day. I like my towels to dry outside in the sun and get some Vitamin D. That day it got hotter and hotter, and there was not a drop of rain. In fact, we even had a swim that afternoon. At about 4am on Sunday morning it started raining. The towels that I had set aside for washing were used to soak up the water in my kitchen and study. We have a small leak in the roof which needs attention, but that is a story for another day.

The following Saturday we were out for the day so no washing could be scheduled. On the Sunday I checked the weather app and once again rain was predicted. But like the previous week, it did not arrive. I was left with no choice but to wash the jersey the following weekend as I needed it for my trip to Johannesburg in case it got cold. We also have no choice when fresh tuna arrives for us. If a shark takes a bite out of one it cannot be sold, and then we get a few decent slices to eat. Dave’s one customer gave him a list of ingredients to use as tuna sauce, and I created the recipe from it. The sauce is so tasty that we took some up to the friend who gives us the tuna. How do you normally eat your tuna?
