Tuna Steaks with Potatoes (Marmitako)

This delicious dish is a classic from the Basque country, bordering on France. If tuna steaks are not available, substitute halibut or cod instead.

ingredients

serves 4
125 ml (4 fl oz) 1/2 cup Olive oil
2 Onions, chopped
1 Garlic clove, crushed
3 Medium potatoes, sliced into 1 cm (1/2 in) thick rounds
2 Small red peppers, pith and seeds removed and cut into strips
Salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 tsp Paprika
4 Tuna fish steaks, about 2 1/2 cm (1 in) thick
175 ml (6 fl oz) 3/4 cup Water

method

1. Heat the oil in a large, deep frying-pan. Add the onions and garlic and fry until they are soft. Add the potatoes and peppers and fry for 5 minutes, turning occasionally. Stir in the seasoning and paprika. Add the tuna steaks and fry until they are lightly browned on both sides. Pour over the water and bring to the boil.

2. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pan and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the fish flesh flakes easily.

3. Remove the pan from the heat and transfer the mixture to a warmed serving dish. Serve at once.
