Japanese Noodle Soup with Fresh Tuna

I like to cook from other nationalities so here is a great super healthy treat from Japan!

RECIPE: Seared Tuna Steaks, succulant in the middle served with noodles in a Japanese style soup.

You will need:

600 ml (1 pint) fish stock
4 tbsp reduced salt soy sauce
4 tbsp of sake of dry sherry
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp sesame oil
250 g cooked noodles
4 tuna steaks
2 tbsp sesame seeds
Fresh coriander to garnish

To make:

1. Put the stock, soy sauce, sake, vinegar, sugar and 1 tbsp of the oil into a saucepan. Bring to the boil and cook uncovered for 15 minutes or reduce by about one third

2. Brush the tuna steaks with the remaining oil and coat the edge of the tuna with the sesame seeds

3. Cook the noodles in the soup according to packet instructions.
Heat a ridged frying pan until very hot and cook the tuna for 2 to 3 minutes each side

4. Transfer the noodles to serving bowls, pour over the stock, top with the tuna steaks and garnish with coriander. Serve immediately.

This really is an amazing soup with lots of protein and nutritional values!
