10 ounces sushi-grade bluefini toro tuna

Sea Salt

Freshly ground black pepper

6 cups mixed baby greens

Matsuhisa Dressing, recipe follows

Matsuhisa Dressing:

3/4 cup finely chopped Maui onion

2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon rice vinegar

2 teaspoons water

1/2 teaspoon sugar

Pinch sea salt

1/4 teaspoon powdered mustard

Pinch freshly ground black pepper

4 teaspoons grapeseed oil

4 teaspoons sesame oil


  1. Preheat a grill or a broiler.
  2. Sprinkle a little sea salt and pepper on the tuna. Briefly sear the tuna on all sides until its surface turns white. Plunge the fish into a bowl of ice water to stop it cooking any further. Shake off the excess water. Cut the tuna into 1/8-inch thick slices. Toss the greens with some of the Matsuhisa dressing and place on a plate. Top with the sliced tuna. Drizzle with a little more dressing.

Matsuhisa Dressing:

  1. Combine all of the ingredients except the oils. When the salt is fully dissolved, add the oils. Set aside.
