2 yellow or red sweet peppers 400 g
2 tsp olive oil 10 mL
4 tuna steaks, or blue marlin 500 g
4 cups mixed greens 100 g
2 tbsp Classic Vinaigrette 30 mL
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil 10 mL
4 tsp chives, fresh [optional] 4 g
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
aluminum foil


  1. Cut the peppers into quarters lengthwise, removing the seeds and the stems, then brush them with the olive oil, and sprinkle with plenty of salt. Arrange them on a hot grill, or under a preheated broiler in the oven. Cook the peppers until they are golden-brown and charred in spots, 5 to 7 min, turning them once. To make the peeling operation easier, cover or wrap the peppers in aluminum foil or in a paper bag, and let them cool down a few minutes (the moisture kept within will help lift the peel).
  2. Put the tuna steaks in a dry pan or on a grill, over medium-low heat. Sear 3-4 min per side, depending on the desired level of doneness. Tuna dries out very quickly when overcooked and is best appreciated served "pink" or "blue" in the centre. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Wrap the steaks in aluminum foil and set aside for 5 min so that the juices can distribute evenly and give the inside time to become soft and tender.
  3. Use these last few minutes to dress the plates with the vegetables. Rinse and spin-dry the mixed greens, then put them in a bowl and toss with the Classic Vinaigrette. Season with salt and pepper, then divide them up onto the individual serving plates. Arrange the peppers on top, then add the tuna steaks and drizzle with the extra virgin olive oil. Garnish with chopped chives and freshly ground pepper, then serve.
