Ingredients

  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 tsp white sesame seeds
  • 2 tsp black sesame seeds
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce

Method

  • 1
    Rinse rice in sieve with cold running water until it runs clear. In a medium saucepan, bring rice to boil in water over medium-high heat. Cook, covered, over low heat, for 25 minutes or until rice is tender and water absorbed.

    Cook sesame seeds in a small frying pan over medium heat. Stir for 2 minutes or until golden.

    Whisk soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil and three-quarters of the sesame seeds in a medium jug. Toss tuna and three-quarters of the spring onion with half the soy dressing. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the fridge for at least 5 minutes.
