Seared Yellowfin Tuna Sashimi with Pomegranate seeds and wasabi mayo


⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Inspired after a lovely meal @kentishhare in Bidborough, I thought this would make a fantastic starter or lunch over the festive period. My version takes no more than 20 minutes to prepare, its that simple, but the flavour combinations are gorgeous and your guests will feel you’ve gone to a lot of effort.
