We don't suggest any doses because they depend on the way you want to serve it.
Tuna steaks must be cut thick. Remove skin and bones from them and mince roughly with a knife. Put minced tuna in a bowl and cover
with lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and let tuna marinate in a cool place for a couple of hours, covered. Then drain the
excess of lemon and dress with abundant extra virgin olive oil and chives. The dish is ready.
It's a good main course accompanied with a potato salad or a green salad with dried or fresh fruit. You can read some suggestions in the specific section. But you can prepare it for a buffet or as an appetizer too.
Another way to marinate fresh tuna is using grapefruit juice. In this case we use very thin tuna steaks without skin and bones;
we arrange them in a deep dish and cover with grapefruit juice, balm-mint leaves and olive oil. We season to taste with salt and let
them marinate for about an hour in a cool place.
You can accompany this dish with a green salad or a citrus fruits one (you have to remove peel from oranges and grapefruits, cut them into slices crossways and dress with black olives, olive oil and salt)
