- Lets start by making the dressing, Begin by toasting sesame seeds in a dry pan along with some ginger and garlic until all are nicely toasted. When ready add to a pestle and mortar followed by 3 tbsp light soy, 3 tbsp sesame oil, 1 tbsp mirin, 2 tbsp sugar and 1 tsp of rice vinegar. Next grind all ingredients until the sesame seeds, garlic and ginger are nicely ground then set the dressing to one side.
2. Now we can prepare the vegetables and tuna for this dish, in a large mixing bowl add sliced white onion, sliced spring onions, roughly chopped coriander and finely sliced chillis. Then cut the tuna into bite sized cube pieces and add to the bowl.
I recommend you try this recipe with raw salmon also, if you don’t like the idea of eating raw seafood then you could also try it with cooked fish. Another way is by adding lime juice to the tuna beforehand so that it starts cooking the fish like a ceviche. You can also add some Korean pepper paste or even siracha to this recipe if you really want to get after that spice. Have fun playing around with this recipe I think it’s such a flexible dish to create.
