  • lemon 1 large, juiced
  • mixed grains 250g pouch (we used Merchant Gourmet Glorious Grains)
  • cumin seeds ½ tsp, toasted and lightly crushed
  • spring onions 3, finely chopped
  • cucumber ¼, cut into small dice
  • mint a small handful, roughly chopped
  • flat-leaf parsley a small handful, roughly chopped
  • natural yogurt 4 tbsp  


  • Step 1

    Soak 4 wooden skewers in water.

  • Step 2

    Toss the tuna chunks with the harissa and 1 tbsp of the lemon juice, and leave to marinate for 10 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Heat the grains following pack instructions, then toss with the cumin, spring onions, some seasoning and 2-3 more tbsp of the lemon juice, depending on how zingy you like it.

  • Step 4

    Thread the tuna chunks on 4 skewers. Heat a grill pan to hot then grill the skewers for 1 minute on each side (or cook under a hot grill). Toss the cucumber and herbs through the grains. Serve with the tuna skewers with the yogurt swirled with a little more harissa on the side.
