- Mustard Crisp (makes 8 crisps)
- 2 tbsp Maille Dijon Originale mustard
- 1 tbsp horseradish, grated
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- 1 ½ tbsp panko breadcrumbs
- ½ tsp corn flour
- 250g piece of sashimi-grade tuna loin (about 10cm long, 4cm square), lightly oiled
- White sesame seeds

- Salad Garnish
- Beetroot, ribboned and finely sliced

Tuna and Dressing
- Lightly salt the oiled tuna, and roll it in the sesame seeds, pressing gently to form a crust.
- Heat the peanut oil in a large frying pan over a high heat.
- Add the tuna and cook on each side until lightly seared. It should cook for no more than 15-20 seconds on each side.
- Leave to cool, wrap in cling film and refrigerate until firm (45-50 minutes).
- Whisk all the dressing ingredients together. Season to taste. If you like it lighter, add a squeeze of lime.
- Pre-heat oven to 180C/350F/gas mark 4.
- Mix all ingredients to form a loose paste.
- Sandwich a teaspoon of the mustard mixture between an oiled cast iron tray and a piece of oiled silicone paper. Place another cast iron tray on top of the silicone paper to flatten.
- Bake for 6 minutes.
- When taking the crisps out of oven, carefully scrape them with a flat spatula to loosen from the pan, and leave to cool and crisp on a piece of kitchen paper.
- Ribbon the cucumber, daikon and beetroot. At the restaurant, we slice these strips into super fine threads, but if you prefer them thicker, go chunky!
