A delicious salad filled with seaweed, edamame and topped with a garlic seared tuna steak!
We ate the most amazing tuna steak while we were in Japan and it's been my favourite meal every since. With each attempt, I'm been perfecting my tuna searing skills and I've got it down to a fine art. This salad is great if you're looking for a healthy dinner option as it's rich in protein and contains seaweed which is a superfood.
