Fresh tuna and vegetable pie

Another evening another pie? Well maybe. But I use this blog to document what I cook so that’s how it is. Last week I had a delicious beef pie at a favourite pub and I can’t begin to think how I might emulate that. But I am going back next week to investigate further. However, I enjoy cooking pies with fish and can do it myself!

Today what caught my eye while shopping was some fresh tuna. Yum! Fresh tuna, some vegetables, with garlic and ginger in puff pastry was what I thought as I shopped. And so it was! The added pleasure with the tuna is that tuna always reminds me of Greek (and Mycenaean) colonization following the tunny schools to the Black Sea and my mind has been involved with the Black Sea recently. 


260 gr fresh tuna
2 sheets frozen puff pastry
1/2 zucchini
1/4 red pepper
2 cloves garlic
2 teaspoons crushed ginger root


Preheat oven to 180c.
Remove pastry from freezer to thaw.
Meanwhile crush the garlic and ginger
Julienne the zucchini
Chop the red pepper into 4-5 pieces
Place one sheet of the pastry in the bottom of baking dish
Add the tuna 
Place the vegetables on top and around the tuna
Add the garlic and ginger
Place the second sheet of pastry on top
Fold the edges to seal
Sprinkle with poppyseed
Bake in 180c oven for 45 minutes

this sounds delicious polyxena. I do love fresh tuna (tho i readily eat it out of a tin), and this looks like a tasty and healthy dish. Ready made pastry makes life so easy too. cheers sherry
