First, prepare the tuna. Heat a large pan over a medium-high heat until very hot. Add the sesame oil and olive oil – the olive oil prevents the sesame from burning. Season the tuna with salt and pepper, and place in the hot pan to sear for no longer than 30 seconds on each side.
Remove the tuna from the pan and allow to cool for five minutes, then coat evenly with a thin layer of wasabi paste.
Chop three-quarters of the coriander and sprinkle over a piece of cling film. Roll the tuna tightly in the cling film, ensuring the shape is that of a long cylinder, and set aside while you make the dressing.
for the dressing
pour the mirin and water in a pan and bring to the boil. Stir in the dashi powder until dissolved. Remove from the heat and mix in soy sauce and rice wine vinegar. Allow to cool before serving.
Combine all the salad ingredients in a bowl and toss together, then add the dressing. Slice the tuna evenly and arrange on the plate, along with salad, topped with the crispy glass noodles. Drizzle over sesame oil and serve.
