tuna steak
1 bag of baby spinach
a handful of parsley, finely chopped
slivered lime zest and juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted
salt, pepper, olive oil

1. Place raisins and lime zest ribbons in a bowl with hot water.
2. Sear tuna. Heat a frying pan, add olive oil. When oil is hot, fry tuna until tender but still pink in the center, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove and drain on paper towels.
3. Drain and discard water from the raisins and lemon zest. Add lemon juice, pine nuts, parsley and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Make a bed of spinach on each plate and place tuna. Spoon lemon relish on top.
