Eamonn Connors is head chef at?The Old Spot, a new gastropub in Dublin’s Beggars Bush. Opened by Barry and Paul McNerney – owners of Juniors and Paulie’s Pizza – with Brian O’Malley?and Stephen Cooney of The Bath Pub, it’s a promising combination of talent if ever there was one.

METHOD
1 Dice the tuna into 1/4in squares.
