Prep Time

        Prep and cook time: 15 minutes
        Yield: Serves 2


    •    1 lemon
    •    1 ripe tomato, sliced
    •    olive oil cooking spray
    •    1/2 garlic clove, crushed
    •    2 x 200gm Sirloin steaks
    •    1/2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
    •    handful rocket, spinach and watercress salad
    •    pinch cumin seeds, toasted in a dry frying pan and lightly crushed


  1. Rub the steak with the crushed cumin, zest of ½ lemon, salt and black pepper, then spray all over with the olive oil. Heat a griddle pan until hot, then sear the steak for 2-3 minutes on each side or until cooked to your liking. Set aside to rest, then slice.
  2. Put the olive oil in a separate clean frying pan and warm on a low heat with the garlic, a pinch of sea salt and the juice of ½ lemon. Add the sliced tomato and warm gently for a few minutes.
  3. Toss the salad leaves with an extra squeeze of lemon and a little salt, then serve with the steak and the warm tomatoes alongside.
