Serves: 12 PRINT THIS


  • 150g Dinko Southern Bluefin Tuna portion, slightly frozen.
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp fresh basil, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried hot pepper flakes
  • 1 large cucumber, seeded and diced
  • 12 toasted baguette slices, cut diagonally into 1 cm slices
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • Sea Salt and pepper


1 Pat Southern Bluefin Tuna dry before slicing the tuna into small cubes. Cover and place in fridge

2 In a bowl, whisk together the honey, oil, vinegar, basil and pepper. Add the cucumber. Season with salt and pepper. Let marinate for 10 minutes.

3 Preheat the grill on high. Toast the baguette slices about 30 seconds each side, or until golden brown. Remove from the heat and rub one side of each crouton with the garlic clove. Set aside.
