    12. 3 T black pepper
    13. Garlic chive flowers for garnish
    14. Thai basil for garnish

    2. Fire up a grill or preheat oven to broil
    3. Add coconut milk, chicken stock, lime juice, fish sauce, chilis,and cilantro stems to saucepan, bring to a simmer to reduce
    4. Heat a thick bottomed skillet to high heat and coat tuna steaks in black pepper
    5. Add oil to hot pan and sear tuna 30 seconds per side, reserve
    6. Halve leeks, and cut off the leafy tops, keeping the roots intact and lightly oil them with a neutral oil
    7. Put leeks on grill or in oven, they will take a while to char on the outside
    8. Slice the mango and bell pepper into small, even, brunoise, discarding all seeds
    9. Check the sauce reduction, it should evenly coat the back of a metal spoon, and not run
    10. When leeks are well charred on the outside remove and plate the dish on a base of the reduced sauce, using the cilantro, thai basil and flowers as a garnish.
