How do I make it?
Cook soba noodles according to directions on packet. Add snow peas during the final minute of cooking. Remove from heat and rinse with warm water, then drain and set aside.
In a large bowl add soy sauce, lime juice, chilli sauce and sesame oil and whisk to combine. Add noodles and coriander and toss to coat.
Add both types of sesame seeds to a shallow dish and mix together. Spray tuna with cooking spray and sprinkle with salt. Place tuna into sesame seeds and coat all sides, pressing if needed to make the seeds stick.
In a large frying pan heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add tuna and cook for 3 minutes per side for medium-rare tuna, or to your liking.
To serve, divide noodles between plates and top with sliced tuna. Garnish with spring onion.
