I have wanted to cook this dish for soooo long. I am mad for seafood, especially sashimi-style seafood, and especially salmon and tuna (although if you follow this blog, you would know this already!) So nothing sounds more tempting to me than tuna with a crispy crust, seared and served rare... and this dish definitely ticked those boxes. I bought my tuna from Leo's in Heidelberg and was pleasantly surprised how cheap it was to pick up two fresh, good cuts- $10 for two (individually wrapped fillets from the seafood section).
Now this dish might look fancy schmancy, but its actually super easy to make. If you like sashimi, carpaccio, or even if you don't and want to try the whole raw fish thing but not all the way raw- then you should give this a try. I am not going to include the recipe for the soba noodle salad I served with it, as I wasn't impressed with that (yes, I do sometimes cook things I don't like!) but this dish could be served alone as an appetizer, or with an Asian salad or coleslaw, or with your favourite vegetarian stirfry dish.
