- Prep Time: 5 minutes
- Total Time: 10 minutes
- Yield: 3 (as a starter) 1x
- Category: Fish
- 2 tbsps light soy sauce
- 2 tbsps freshly-squeezed orange juice
- 1 tbsp freshly-squeezed lime juice
- 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
- 1 tsp toasted sesame seeds
- 1 tsp fresh ginger root, peeled and grated
- 1 small spring onion, finely sliced
- 2 tbsps neutral oil (vegetable, sunflower, etc.)
- 300 g sushi-grade tuna
- In a small bowl, combine the light soy sauce, freshly-squeezed orange juice, freshly-squeezed lime juice, toasted sesame oil, toasted sesame seeds, fresh ginger and spring onion. Set aside.
- Heat the neutral oil in a small, non-stick frying pan over high heat. Sear the tuna on all sides – it should only need around 30 seconds per side.
- Transfer the tuna to a chopping board and let cool for a few minutes. Using a very sharp knife, slice the tuna against the grain into ½ cm-ish thick slices. Arrange the tuna on a plate, top with the sauce and serve – enjoy!
