Perfect for summer lunches or an al fresco dinner party, this informal dish is simple to make and very healthy. Serve with extra slices of toasted ciabatta.
Swordfish makes a pleasant alternative to tuna. It's another firm, meaty-textured fish, which although lower in fat than tuna, is also rich in omega-3 oils. Take care not to overcook, as it can become dry.
*The tuna can be left in its marinade for several hours or overnight in the fridge, along with the crumb topping and the basil-filled tomatoes. To make the crumbs, whizz day-old bread briefly in a food processor. *If preferred, the tuna and the tomatoes can be cooked under a preheated moderate grill.
i didnt put in parsley as i didnt have any, but added in some fish seasoning. i liked the overall flavours with the sun-dried tomatoes basil and strong tuna taste! - 03 Sep 2009
