Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Dip the tuna fillets into the soy sauce and coat thoroughly. With a pastry brush, gently brush over some wasabi paste so that it covers the fillets.
Tip the sesame seeds onto a flat plate with a little salt and pepper. Roll the tuna fillets through the seeds and coat them evenly. Chill them until ready to cook.

Now's a good time to prepare the salad. Make sure you keep one third of the salad dressing for later.
Heat a wide frying pan with a little oil until hot. Make sure you check and feel the heat rising from the pan.
Sear the tuna steaks for approximately a minute on each side. Cover with the lid and leave them to cool slightly.
Thickly slice the steaks into 2-3 generous portions. Divide the salad amongst the plates in neat piles. Arrange the tuna slices on top and spoon over a little extra dressing.
