  • 8 tomatoes, blanched, peeled and chopped (not too small)
  • 1 or 2 green chili peppers, chopped (about 2 Tbsp.)
  •  1½ tsp. minced garlic (2 to 4 cloves, depending on the size)
  •  12 radishes, quartered
  •  2 cups cilantro leaves (2 to 3 bunches)
  •  6 pickled lemons
  •  1 Tbsp. honey
  •  Olive oil
  • Lemon juice to taste
  •  Salt
  • 6 pieces (chunks or steaks) red tuna (200 gr. each)
  •  1 bunch arugula leaves
  • 4 eggs
  •  4 slices of a large square sandwich loaf (or more if you use a smaller loaf)

To prepare the lemon paste: In a blender or food processor bowl, grind pickled lemons with 1 Tbsp. honey and a little olive oil until the dressing is a smooth, thick and paste.

To sear the tuna: Rub tuna with a little olive oil. Heat a dry heavy skillet and sear the tuna pieces very briefly on all sides. Slice the tuna thinly into bite-size pieces.

Boil water in a small pot and cook eggs 6 minutes. Let cool and peel.

To prepare the salad: In a large bowl, mix together tomatoes, garlic, cilantro, chili and radishes. Season salad with salt, a drizzle of olive oil and a few drops of lemon juice.

Arrange vegetables on serving plates. Divide the tuna among the plates and arrange the tuna slices on top of the vegetables.

Slice each egg into 4 or 6 wedges. The yolks should still be a little bit soft and runny. Divide the egg wedges among the plates.

Place a few drops of the pickled-lemon paste on each plate and top with a few drops of olive oil. Garnish with arugula.

To make the toasts: Remove the crust from the bread, cut each slice into squares and then into triangles. Spread a little of the lemon paste on each triangle and make sandwiches. Heat a little olive oil in a skillet and fry the toasts on both sides. Place 2 sandwiches on each plate.
