Sashimi of tuna with ginger dressing

Method

  • Briefly blanch the ginger in boiling water. Then rinse in cold water, drain well and squeeze out all the liquid.
  • To make the dressing, combine the ginger, garlic, shallots and coriander with the spring onions and soy. Set aside for up to 30 mins. Then add 3 chopped lime segments and both oils. Toss well and taste for seasoning.
  • To serve, arrange the sliced tuna on individual plates, spoon the dressing on top and sprinkle with the sesame seeds and a little chopped lime. Garnish with extra coriander sprigs.
