My good mate Jonathan Ross is a bit obsessed with Japan so I wanted to create a dish for him that would remind him of all those brilliant Asian flavours. Carpaccio is usually served raw, but I'm searing the beef to give it a bit of colour. You'll be able to pick up these ingredients from most good supermarkets but if you can, get yourself down to a specialist Japanese store and pick up a sachet of authentic Japanese spices – use a tablespoon of that instead of the spice mix.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
