METHOD for Tuna:

Place diced tuna in a bowl and set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together olive oil, soya sauce and ginger. Pour over tuna and season lightly with salt. Lightly stir in sesame seeds and cilantro.

METHOD for Dressing:

In a bowl whisk together all ingredients. Pour over tuna. Chill until service.

METHOD for Salsa:

In a bowl combine mango and radish. Gently add avocado and lime juice and combine, being careful not to mash the avocado. Season with salt.


Using a 3 inch circular mould, spoon enough avocado mixture into the mould to fill a third of the way up. Add tuna tartare to fill the mould. Turn out in the centre of each plate. Garnish each tuna tartare with half a tomato, an orange segment and chive stem. Top with a little Tobiko.
