250g piece fresh tuna

Olive oil

1 tsp wasabi paste

Juice 1/2 lemon

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

2 large rounds pita bread

2 nori sheets

Handful snowpea sprouts

1/2 red capsicum, cut into strips

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


In a hot frying pan, sear the tuna in a little olive oil for about 1 minute on each side, or until browned on the outside but pink in the middle (or as desired). Remove from the pan and cut into slices about 3mm thick.

To make the wasabi dressing, whisk together the wasabi paste, lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil.

On each round of pita bread, lay a sheet of nori and spread with wasabi dressing.

Lay the tuna slices, single layer, over the nori and top with a small handful of snowpea sprouts and some capsicum strips.

Season to taste and roll up like a kebab. Cut into rounds (optional).

Fish, Bread
