Broiled Tuna and some side dishes

During lunchtime I went into the big city and visited a fish monger. I bought tuna steaks: thick slices of tuna. For supper we had this:

You don't have to put everything together on one plate - this is so german.. but it fits on one image (laugh)

I prepared:
  • small potatoe pancakes with chopped spring onion, topped with creme fraiche and kaviar. Therefor I boiled 3 medium big potatoes,  peeled them and mashed them while still hot, mixed the potatoe mash with 3 tablespoons flour, 1 big egg and 1/2 cup finely chopped spring onion (just use a fork no machine please), finished with a pinch salt, pepper and 1 pinch baking powder. Formed 5 balls (with wet hands - the dough is very soft and sticky) and baked the balls flatted into cakes in a pan with oil until browned on 1 side, flipped the pancakes over and let them bake at medium low heat, covered with a lit for about 10 minutes.
I made also:
  • blanched and squeezed baby spinach leaves with a little soy sauce and sesame oil
  • quick pickled baby cucumber: slices salted, squeezed after the juices were released, than spiced with a little lemon juice, a few drops sesame oil, chilli flakes, pinch of sugar
  • leaf chicory salad with honey-mustard-lemon dressing (1:1:1)
  • braised tuna

For the tuna I mixed 1 tablespoon white sesame paste, 1 tablespoon miso, 1 tablespoon sake, covered the fish with this paste and let rest for 2 hours.
Afterwards I grilled the fish on a hot iron plate just for a few minutes (inside should stay pink-red).
