Ginger Sesame Salmon Sashimi Recipe-
- 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
- 1 teaspoon fresh orange juice
- Twelve 1/8-inch-thick slices (about 1/4 pound) of fresh, wild caught Alaskan salmon, well trimmed, and cut into 2-inch squares
- One 1/4-inch piece of fresh ginger root, sliced to paper-thin and then cut into matchstick strips (about 24 pieces)
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped chives
- 2 tablespoons pure grapeseed oil
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 1/2 teaspoons roasted white sesame seeds
- 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro (coriander) leaves, chopped
- Make a soy-citrus sauce by mixing two tablespoons of the soy sauce in a small bowl with the orange and lime juices.
- Take the remaining 1/4 cup of soy sauce and, in a medium sized bowl, toss the salmon with it, allow to stand for 1 minute, and then drain.
- Place in a pleasant pattern, three of the salmon slices on each serving plate. Top them with the ginger and chives.
- Now, over moderately high burn, heat your grapeseed oil in a small saucepan together with the sesame oil. Heat it until the oils are smoking; this will usually take about 2 minutes.
- Drizzle the hot oil over the salmon slices, then do the same with soy-citrus sauce over top. Sprinkle on the chopped cilantro and roasted sesame seeds, and Presto! You are ready to serve your Ginger Sesame Salmon Sashimi!
