Cjw Chargrilled Tuna With Wasabi 770X600

The method

  1. Heat a large griddle pan. Brush each tuna steak with the oil, season generously with the black pepper to taste. Set aside
  2. Mix the wasabi, vinegar and mirin together.  Arrange the cucumber slices on a tray and spoon the dressing over the top. Leave to ‘cure’ for 30 minutes.
  3. Heat a griddle pan until very hot. Add the seasoned tuna steaks and griddle for 2 minutes on each side – less if you like your tuna rare.
  4. Drain the cucumber and toss into the watercress with the sushi ginger. Pile onto a serving dish and arrange the lime wedges around the edge and sprinkle the sesame seeds over the top.
  5. Arrange the cooked tuna around the salad and take to the table to serve.
