Seared Sesame Tuna

Ingredients (serves 6)

*   3 (about 300g each) tuna steaks
*   3 1/2 tbs soy sauce
*   3 tbs sesame seeds
*   1 1/2 tbs peanut oil, plus extra to fry
*   1 small Spanish red onion, cut into rings
*   1 1/2 tbs sherry vinegar
*   1 tsp sesame oil


1. Cover the tuna in two tablespoons soy sauce. Press sesame seeds into both sides of fish and refrigerate for 1/2 hour.

2. Heat a little peanut oil in a pan over very high heat and fry tuna quickly on one side for about 1 minute, then turn and cook for about half a minute. Set aside to rest.

3. Meanwhile, combine remaining ingredients and transfer to a serving plate. Cut each steak into six diagonal slices and place on top of salad.
