1
Begin by preparing the tuna. Brush the tuna pieces with the sesame oil and place in a very hot pan to sear evenly, cooking for 20 seconds on each side. Remove the tuna from the pan and immediately plunge into a bowl of iced water to halt the cooking process
  • 500g of tuna loin, cut into 2.5 - 3cm square batons
  • 2 tbsp of sesame oil
2
Leave the tuna in iced water for 3 minutes, then remove and drain on a cloth. Once drained, set aside until required

For the lime chilli dressing, pound the lime zest, palm sugar, chilli and salt with a pestle and mortar and mix in the lime juice and fish sauce
  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • 1/2 chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp palm sugar, grated
  • 1/4 tsp coarse sea salt
  • 60ml of lime juice

Combine the prepared salad ingredients in a bowl and toss through the lime chilli dressing to coat

  • 150g of green mango, julienned
  • 100g of cucumber, peeled and julienned
  • 1/2 bunch of coriander, cut into 1cm lengths
5
To make the nori sauce, toast 8 of the nori sheets over a char-grill or open flame, taking care not to let the sheets catch fire. Crush the toasted sheets, then tear up the remaining nori sheets and combine
  • 30g of nori seaweed, or about 10 sushi sheets
6
Meanwhile, add the mirin, sake, tamari and red wine vinegar to a pan and bring to the boil. Add the crushed nori and reduce to a rolling simmer for 1 minute, stirring well. Blitz with a stick blender and allow to cool in the fridge until required
  • 100ml of mirin
  • 100ml of sake
  • 70ml of tamari

Make the peanut gomasio by simply pounding the sesame seeds, salt and peanuts in a pestle and mortar until coarse

  • 30g of flaky sea salt
  • 60g of toasted peanuts, roughly chopped
8
To serve, thinly slice the tuna and arrange on top of the dressed salad. Drizzle over the nori sauce, sprinkle with the gomasio and garnish with micro-coriander
