Cut the zucchinis into slices and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat the grill pan and grill the zucchini for 6 minutes, turning halfway. Then cook the asparagus for 4 minutes, turning halfway.


Place the vegetables in a bowl and add in the marinade. Mix gently until covered.


To serve, divide veg and tuna between plates and top with chopped pistachio nuts.
