This is a healthy, delicious baked tuna recipe – simply seasoned with garlic, tomatoes and stock.
Fish dishes are very popular in Albania with some cities such as Shkoder known for their local lake fish recipes. Baked tuna is a lovely change to the traditional Albanian white fish, although costs a bit more.
Inspired by the use of tomato, garlic and dried stock in local villages I decided to take our tuna ‘treat’ and use it instead of our normal seabass or pollock.
It was really nice and the garlic complimented the fish well. Tuna has a lot of protein so we had ours along side a simple salad and some fresh homemade bread (sometimes with white fish we have boiled eggs).
You can use slices of the tuna fish or tuna steaks.
Prepare the Base for the Fish
On a casserole tray or dish, layer the tomato over the bottom, place one or two slices of garlic on top of each tomato and sprinkle with some dried vegetable stock.
Adding the Fish
Brush the fish lightly with olive oil and then place the tuna on top of the tomatoes add some more garlic, drizzle a tiny bit more of olive oil over the top and then season with some more stock, salt, pepper and the parsley.
Bake the Fish
Bake in the oven on 180 degrees for 25 minutes, ensure the oven is hot before putting the fish in. The tuna is ready when it just starts to flake, test with a fork - you can eat the fish while it is slightly pink in the middle.
