Step 1In medium bowl, toss tuna with canola oil, (this ensures perfectly seared tuna). Set aside.
Step 2In a small bowl, combine sauce ingredients. Set aside.
Step 3Heat a wok or large heavy skillet to medium-high heat. Spray canola oil cooking spray to coat pan; add smashed garlic and ginger pieces to flavour oil. After 20 seconds, add carrots. Cook for 2 - 3 minutes, then add asparagus. Spray more canola oil if necessary to keep vegetables from sticking. Cook for additional 2 minutes or until asparagus is bright green and carrots are tender. Remove vegetables from pan and set aside on flat plate.
Step 4Spray pan with canola oil cooking spray. Add mushroom pieces. Cook for 2 - 3 minutes until browned. Remove from pan and set aside with other vegetables.
Step 5Reheat pan to medium-high heat. Add tuna in two batches without crowding pan. Gently move tuna around with spatula. Sear tuna until just cooked. Remove first batch from pan and set aside. Repeat with second batch, leaving in wok or skillet.
Step 6Return carrots, asparagus and mushroom to wok or skillet. Add edamame and first batch of tuna. Make a well in center of stir-fry ingredients and pour sauce in middle. Coat vegetables with sauce and quickly bring to a boil. Serve tuna-vegetable mix over hot vermicelli.
