½ tbsp grated ginger

30g peeled daikon radish, grated

½ spring onion, sliced thinly

1 leaf shiso, sliced thinly


Ponzu Sauce

Maguro Tataki (Tuna Tataki)

Method

Mix all of the ponzu ingredients together, and allow to steep for 2 days at room temperature. Strain out the kombu and bonito flakes.

Prepare an ice bath. Prepare a baking tray with a wire cooling rack fitted on top of it. Lightly season all sides of the tuna with salt. Using a torch, torch all sides of the tuna. Once each side becomes a little bit caramelised, plunge the tuna immediately into the ice water to prevent it from overcooking.

Slice the tuna into ¾ cm slices. Arrange the slices on a plate and sprinkle the ponzu sauce generously over top of the tuna slices. Garnish with the grated daikon radish, the grated ginger, shiso and spring onion.
