- Place Wakame and Sea Chicory in separate small bowls. Cover with tepid water and let rest until re-hydrated and tender, about 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, place tuna, onion, scallion, sesame seeds, soy sauce, sesame oil, honey, and optional crushed red pepper in a large bowl. Season with a small pinch of salt and gently fold to combine. Taste and adjust with more soy sauce, sesame oil, honey, or crushed red pepper as desired.
- Drain the seaweed and squeeze out excess water. Roughly chop the seaweeds, add to the bowl and mix until well combined.
- Let sit 5 minutes at room temperature, then serve on its own or on top of steamed rice.
