    Serves: 12
    Cooking Time: 30 mins


    • 200g loin of tuna, at room temperature
    • 100ml sesame oil
    • 80ml (¹/³ cup) black sesame seeds
    • 1 English cucumber, thinly sliced
    • 50ml pickled ginger
    • 50ml balsamic reduction
    • alfalfa sprouts, to garnish



    Rub the tuna with the sesame oil and cover it with the sesame seeds.


    Heat a frying pan and sear the tuna for 1 minute on each side. Let it cool, then slice it into bite-sized pieces.


    Place the cucumber slices into individual bowls. Place a piece of ginger on the cucumber and top with a piece of tuna. Using a cocktail stick, secure the sides of the cucumber around the tuna.
