Salmon: Remove the pin bones from the salmon, remove the skin and trim the sides straight. Cut the fish into 2cm cubes. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Combine the chives and parsley, season well with salt and pepper and place in a shallow dish.
Tuna: Remove the skin from the tuna and trim the sides straight. Cut into 2cm cubes, cover and refrigerate with the salmon until ready to use.
Dukka: Toast the sesame seeds in a dry pan over a medium heat, until golden. Cool. Place these, along with the other dukka ingredients, in the food processor and pulse until finely chopped but not oily. Tip out onto a plate.
To serve: Just before serving squeeze the lemon juice over the salmon and tuna and toss through. Dip the top and bottom of each piece of salmon in the herbs and top and bottom of each piece of tuna in the dukka.
