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
3
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
4
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
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

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
