Tuna Tataki

This was so simple, yet so delicious.  Tuna, caught the day before, rolled in soy sauce, then black sesame seeds, and quickly seared on each side.  Avocado puree, spicy chilli sauce, and a crunchy salad, with crispy slices of garlic. 

The avocado puree was simply avocado, lime juice and salt, topped with basil tops. 

 I was surprised at how delicious this all actually was!  I was also surprised at the mess I had made in the kitchen, and how I am finding black sesame seeds everywhere - the following day!  But it was worth it.  

The dipping sauce was a simple mix of light soy, sesame oil, lime juice, salt, pepper, and ginger.

The salad was just some salad greens, steamed and refreshed bok choy, julienne carrot and ginger (placed in an ice bath before draining to keep it crispy), and finely sliced red onion, sitting atop more of the avocado puree.
