1. For the bread, stir yeast together with 250 ml water, pour into a medium sized bowl, add sugar and salt until the yeast has completely dissolved. Stir in the activated charcoal and the squid ink. Roughly knead in flour and the egg. Cover the dough with cling film and let it prove in a warm place (approx. 40°C) for 30 minutes.

2. Knead the dough again on a surface that has been dusted with flour. Smear a loaf pan with butter and dust it with flour. Put the dough in the loaf form and let prove again for 20 minutes. When it is done proving, bake the bread dough for 30 to 35 minutes in a preheated oven at 185°C with convection or 200°C upper/lower heat.

3. Let the bread cool completely, remove its crust and cut four strips (1–2 cm high, 2 × 5 cm broad). Carefully smear the bread strips with butter and toast them in a non-stick pan on both sides for approx. 3 to 4 minutes.

4. In the meantime, cut the tuna fillet into 4 long strips. Heat up a barbecue or a frying pan and brush it lightly with rapeseed oil. Sear or grill the tuna on each side for 3 minutes. Mix the activated charcoal with the sesame. Drizzle lemon on the tuna after it is seared and then rub in the activated charcoal and sesame mixture.

5. To serve the dish, make a long strip of wasabi paste with a spoon on a flat plate. Place the toasted bread on the wasabi strip. Place the tuna on the bread. If you like a splash of green, add a few pieces of lettuce and a slice of horseradish. Mix the soya sauce with the coriander and serve it with the plate in a small bowl.

Siemens Home professional tip:

If you have a Siemens Home oven with a baking sensor, you can simply choose the
setting ‘bread’ and the oven will make sure things are prepared perfectly. An oven with
integrated steam cooking is also fantastic for making bread. In this case, choose the
program ‚white bread in a loaf pan’ for preparation.

Preparation time: approx. 30 minutes plus time for proving and baking
