Paul has lived in Ibiza for 7 years, with his wife Fay. Paul is a resident DJ at Ushuaia and Space and feels he´s living out his dreams every day.

Paul also has a huge passion for cooking and all things that taste good. He´s also got into foraging while on his walks with his friend and mega cook Danny Ortega.

This recipe is best with top grade tuna, we seared very lightly so it´s just warm and pink in the middle. This sauce is creamy and goes perfectly with the tuna. Paul likes it because it´s a good meal for him to eat with lots of good stuff to keep him going, especially needed with late nights and early mornings.
