Serving Change
  • 1
    tuna steak (about 300g)
  • 2 servings of noodles of your choice, cooked to your preference
  • 3
    soy sauce
  • a few Tablespoons of olive oil for marinating and for searing
  • 2
    lemon juice
  • 2
    spring onions (sliced lengthwise for garnish)
  • 1
    small piece of ginger (skinned and grated)
  • 1
    small garlic clove (skinned and grated)
  • 1
    Chinese 5 spice mix
  • 1
    sesame seeds (garnish)
  • 1
    onion seeds (garnish)
  • 2 drops of honey
  • 2
    dollops Super Sour Siracha Chilli Sauce (or any hot sauce) to serve on side
  • salt and pepper to taste



Place the tuna steak on plate and rub with 5 spice mix, 1 T olive oil, ginger, 1 T soy sauce and honey. Let it marinate at room temperature for about 15 minutes.

Heat the olive oil in a pan over high heat and when oil is fragrant and hot, sear the tuna 1 – 2 minutes on each side. Let it rest on a plate, so that when you break it into pieces later it is not too saucy, then season with salt and pepper.

In a large bowl mix the remainder of the soy sauce, the lemon juice and garlic. Mix in the cooled, cooked noodles and let this rest for a couple of minutes. This gives the noodles a soba noodle taste.

When plating, dish the noodles first, then break the tuna into bite size pieces and stack on top. Garnish with onion and sesame seeds, serve with a dollop of Sriracha sauce on the side, accompanied with spring onion and a slice of lemon.
