¼-½ c soy sauce (I like San-J Low Sodium, and not because of the low sodium)
½ T sambal oelek
1 t sesame oil
3 scallions, white and green parts separated, sliced as thinly as your patience will allow, on the bias
2 cloves garlic, smashed and minced finely
½" chunk of ginger, peeled and grated
½ sweet onion, Maui is ideal, but Vidalia or Walla-Walla will work, cut lengthwise and sliced thin into slivers
1 lb sushi-grade tuna (bluefin, yellowfin, etc. will all work IF THEY ARE CRAZY FRESH), cut in cubes of ½"
2 t of sesame seeds (crushed macadamia nuts or slivered almonds are also nice)
Mix the soy sauce, sambal, sesame oil, scallion whites, garlic, ginger and onions in a medium bowl. Add the tuna cubes and allow to marinate in the fridge for 30-45 minutes.
Add the sesame seeds or the macadamia nuts. Plate up and garnish with the scallion greens.
