1.  Heat a ridged cast-iron grill pan until it is very hot. Brush the piece of tuna with oil and sprinkle liberally with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cook the tuna for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes on each face, until colored all over. Remember the center of the tuna should remain raw. Remove from the pan and season again. Let cool completely.

2.  Blend all the guacamole ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Mix all the soy dressing ingredients together.

3.  Slice the tuna into 1/4-inch (5-mm) slices and arrange on four cold plates. The slices should slightly overlap and be to the side of the plates. Put a spoonful of the guacamole on each plate, again slightly to the side (offsetting food on plates makes it look more natural). Add a generous pool ot dressing and decorate the guacamole with a sprig of cilantro.
