These delicious Tuna Bites with Soya and Sesame Dressing is the perfect accompaniment to the Talent & Terroir Cinsaut Rosé. The fruit in the wine deliciously matches the succulence of the tuna – and the colours match beautifully!
2 x 150 g fresh tuna steaks, skinned
4 garlic cloves, crushed
2 T fresh ginger, very finely grated
4 T soya sauce
4 T sesame oil
Coriander, to garnish
For the dressing, mix:
3 T soya sauce
2 t sesame oil
1 T rice wine vinegar
1 red bird’s-eye chili, very thinly sliced
Sugar or honey a pinch
Place the tuna steaks on a flat surface and slice into 1 cm-thick strips. Mix the garlic, ginger and soya sauce to form a paste and smear it onto the tuna.
Heat the sesame oil in a pan to piping hot and sear the tuna for 20 seconds on each side, or until brown on the outside but still bright pink inside. Remove from the pan and cut into bite-size pieces.
Place on a platter and insert a wooden cocktail skewer into each piece. Drizzle over the dressing and garnish with coriander.
Recipe note: Make the dressing ahead of time so that the flavours have plenty of time to develop.
