To prepare the wakame: Put the wakame in a bowl with 2 cups (½ L) of boiling water and leave to soak for 10 minutes. Drain the seaweed in a colander for 5 minutes, cut into 2cm pieces, and leave to cool.

Cook the noodles according to the package directions.

Lightly toast the sesame seeds in a dry frying pan until golden. Set aside.

To make the dressing: Whisk the sesame oil, canola oil, rice wine vinegar, mirin, and soy sauce in a bowl. Set aside.

Drain the noodles in a colander, transfer to a bowl, and stir through the wakame and three-quarters of the dressing. Divide the noodles between two bowls. Top each portion with tuna, sprinkle with the scallion and sesame seeds, and then drizzle with the rest of the dressing. Serve immediately.
