This is healthy – low fat, low carbs, plenty of fishy goodness and a decent step towards your five a day. It’s tasty but light, so it’s a good option when you can’t face anything too rich. I apologise for including such a thing on this site.

You will need:

  • A bunch of asparagus
  • Tuna steaks (one each)
  • Portobello mushrooms
  • Tomatoes
  • Baby leeks (or one grown-up leek)
  • BBQ rub (I recommend Cajun seasoning)
  • Salt & pepper
  • Olive oil
