I invented something for dinner this evening, based on two recipes I'd not tried before. I don't like doing that (coz it might all go horribly wrong) but it worked, so I'm gonna write it down so I can cook it again sometime :) (and yes, it's simple, but I'm not good at invention, so simple is best ;) )

Grilled Tuna with Garlic and Herb Butter
Serves two with lots of butter left over.

100g unsalted butter
1 garlic clove
2 pinches of dried Herbes de Provence
2 pinces of dried Basil

2 tuna steaks

Chop/Crush the garlic.
Soften the butter in the microwave for 30s or so.
Mix in the garlic and herbs, bit by bit.
Leave the butter in the fridge for an hour or two to solidify.

Grill the tuna, putting garlic and herb butter on it each time it's turned. It took about 20 minutes on a medium grill, but was probably OK about 5 minutes before.

Serve with new potatoes and peas (NB the garlic butter didn't work as well on the potatoes as on the tuna).
