Infusions Tuna Lemon & Thyme
Tuna with zesty lemon and thyme-infused extra virgin olive oil. Super served cold with a salad. The convenient, no-drain pot and easy-open lid also make this an easy lunch to whip up at home or at the office.
Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and cook the courgetti, green beans and broccoli for two minutes.
Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large pan and sauté the courgettes for 3-4 minutes until golden. Add the pine nuts, garlic and sugarsnaps and cook for one minute longer.
Drain the green vegetables, reserving a little of the cooking water. Add to the pan with the courgettes and stir to combine.
Add the capers, crème fraîche and plenty of black pepper and stir to combine, adding a splash or two of the cooking water to loosen. Gently stir in the tuna.
Divide between two warmed serving bowls. Scatter over a few extra thyme leaves and serve with lemon wedges for squeezing.
