Not one of my best dishes because I added too much yoghurt at the end, however I gave it its spicy taste again by adding more herbs and spices.

Also I could use different types of chili to vary the hotness. Name of Dish: Chili, Lime and Tuna Steaks Why Have You Chosen It? I chose this recipe because I hadn't experimented with a fish recipe so far and I felt I had to because fish. Especially tuna is very healthy because of its very high protein content.

I could also vary the vegetables used and could also serve it with rice. ...read more.
