Ingredients

Sesame Seeds

2 teaspoons

Peas, fresh or frozen

200 g, frozen

Avocado pear

1 medium

0% fat natural Greek yogurt

4 tablespoons

Lime Juice, Fresh

2 tablespoons

Coriander, fresh

2 tablespoons, finely chopped

Garlic

1 clove(s), crushed

Tuna in spring water, drained

1 can(s), large, drained

Watercress

80 g

Instructions

  1. Toast the sesame seeds in a dry frying pan set over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes, until fragrant and golden, then transfer to a bowl and set aside. Blanch the frozen peas in a pan of boiling water for 3-5 minutes, then drain and refresh under cold running water.
  2. To make a dressing, mash the avocado flesh in a small bowl, then mix in the yogurt, lime juice, coriander and garlic, then season to taste. Loosen with a little water if it seems too thick.
  3. Drain the tin of tuna and put onto a serving platter with the peas, watercress and pea shoots. Spoon over the avocado dressing and scatter over the toasted sesame seeds to serve.
