Tuna Tagine

Monday Morning Cooking Club showcases Zoe and Adam Milgrom

This is a wonderful recipe from Zoe and Adam, a young couple from Melbourne who really know their food. The are featured in The Feast Goes On where they share a delightful and unique red cabbage slaw which (we have no doubt!) will grace many tables in the coming years.

Adam has recently opened Paperboy Kitchen in Melbourne’s CBD – it sounds like the perfect place to pick up a delicious Vietnamese-inspired quick city lunch.

For this dish, make sure you buy the best quality tuna you can find so it can shine when you gently steam it over layers of slow-cooked potato, capsicum (peppers) and lemon. A really innovative and interesting take on the tagine and on our usually-grilled-or-sahsimi’d tuna steak. Take care not to over cook the tuna.

Instructions
  1. Choose a tagine or casserole dish (at least 3 litres) with matching lid that can be taken from the stove directly to the dining table.
  2. Fry the onions, peppers & garlic in the olive oil over medium heat until soft, about 15 minutes. Add the spices, salt and half the parsley and fry until fragrant, adding a little more oil if needed. Divide the onion mix into three parts, leaving one part in the dish.
  3. Divide the potato slices into three parts. Seasoning each layer as you go, place one third on top of the onion mix in the dish. Continue to layer potatoes and onion mix, finishing with potatoes. Top with the lemon slices and season.
  4. Pour in enough stock to almost cover the vegetable layers; a few pieces can poke up above the liquid. Bring to the boil, reduce heat to a good simmer, then cover and cook on low heat for 40 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft.
  5. Sprinkle the tuna steaks with salt and pepper and drizzle with oilive oil. Lay over the tajine, replace the lid and let the tuna steam for 5-10 minutes, or until cooked through. If you prefer, sear the tuna in a hot pan and serve on top of the vegetables. Finish with a squeeze of lemon juice, sprinkle the remaining parsley and drizzle over some extra olive oil.

Many of you know I have been on the growing 'don't buy Tassie salmon' bandwagon since reading Richard Flanagan's book Toxic about a year ago. It was shocking to see the state of the industry, and even more shocking that we thought we were eating something that was really good for us. This just-released video has strengthened my resolve (which I have to admit was waning as I am not sure how much impact we have all had) to continue and to spread the word.

Please share this post, or any post supporting this stand, it is such an important message - especially for those of us who used to love eating Tassie salmon.

And sadly this also applies to all the smoked salmon from Tassie including @huonsalmon which we all used to love.

Click on the link in our profile for the original @neighbours_of_fish_farming video. 🙏🏻 @joostbakker for posting the video, that's where I first saw it.

I have been buying NZ king salmon @regalsalmonnz @orakingsalmon and @alpinesalmon (Mt Cook, NZ, can buy at @harrisfarmmarkets) and exploring many other fish options. Check out @goodfishproject for an excellent guide to what we should be buying here in Aus.

We also need to rally the big buyers in Aus - @colessupermarkets @woolworths_au to stop buying farmed Tassie salmon until the industry has been cleaned up.

(btw when we were in beautiful Tassie last year, not one restaurant we went to served salmon. Doesn't that say something?)
