Curtis Stone's strawberry, elderflower and brioche summer puddings

Method

  • 01
  • Cover potatoes in a saucepan with plenty of cold salted water and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer until tender (15-20 minutes), then drain and cut into about 7mm-thick slices.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, blanch green beans until tender (1 minute), then refresh and thinly slice crossways.
  • 03
  • Place eggs in a small saucepan, cover with cold water and bring to the boil, then simmer over medium heat until hard-boiled (7 minutes). Drain, refresh in an ice bath to cool completely (2-3 minutes), then peel and cut into small pieces.
  • 04
  • Heat a barbecue or char-grill pan over high heat. Season potatoes and tuna to taste and gently toss each with 1 tsp olive oil to coat and grill until charred on all sides (4-5 minutes for potatoes and 3 minutes for tuna). Leave tuna to rest for 2 minutes, then cut into 2cm dice.
  • 05
  • For mustard dressing, whisk ingredients in a small bowl and season to taste.
  • 06
  • Combine tomatoes, olives, salad leaves, capers, radish, anchovies, shallot, potatoes, beans and egg in a bowl. Transfer to plates, drizzle with dressing, scatter with tuna and herbs and serve.

Note Order albacore tuna, a more sustainable variety with pale flesh, from your fishmonger.
