  2. Heat a griddle pan until smoking hot. Griddle the tuna for 1 minute on each side until nicely coloured. Remove from pan and refrigerate until ready to use

For the Sauce:

  1. When ready to use, remove the tuna from the fridge and slice into ½cm slices. Then cut the slices into thin strips, then into small sized cubes. The flesh is very delicate, so be sure to handle the strips carefully.
  2. When all the tuna is cut, gently stir in the above sauce.

For the Wasabi Mayonnaise:

  1. Mix together the mayonnaise and wasabi. Serve with wasabi mayonnaise and pickled ginger to garnish.
