  4. Heat a chargrill or barbecue on medium-high. Cook potato, turning, for 5 minutes or until charred. Transfer to a bowl. Cook shallot, turning, for 4 minutes or until charred. Transfer to bowl. Cool slightly.
  5. Spray beef with oil. Cook, turning, for 2 minutes for medium or until beef is cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate. Cover loosely with foil.
  6. Combine the mayonnaise, vinegar and wasabi in a bowl. Add to the potato mixture. Toss to coat. Serve beef with the greens and potato salad, sprinkled with the nori mixture.
