  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon sweet chilli sauce
  • 2 teaspoons kecap manis
  • 4 (about 180g) tuna steaks, cut into 3cm pieces
  • Olive oil spray
  • Sweet chilli sauce, extra, to serve
  • Lime wedges, to serve


  • Step 1
    Combine the lime juice, sweet chilli sauce and kecap manis in a shallow glass or ceramic dish. Thread the tuna onto skewers. Add to the lime mixture and turn to coat. Cover and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to marinate.
  • Step 2
    Spray a large non-stick frying pan with olive oil spray and place over high heat. Add one-quarter of the skewers to the pan and cook for 30 seconds each side for medium or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a serving platter. Repeat, in 3 more batches, with the remaining skewers, reheating the pan between batches.
  • Step 3
    Serve the skewers with the extra sweet chilli sauce and lime wedges.
