This recipe for tuna with ginger relish is a lovely way to spice up your supper. It is important to just sear the tuna. It is more like a steak than typical seafood and needs to be served rare. You want to be able to enjoy the taste of the fish. Tuna is quite strong in flavour so it can take bold flavours. This ginger relish adds another dimension to the dish. The ginger relish is a prepared item, available off the supermarket shelf in South Africa. I am fairly sure that you can find a similar ingredient where you live. I prefer to use tuna that has not been frozen. We only use fish that has been sustainably caught.
