Salmon Sashimi, Soy and Orange Salad
This sashimi salad is a serious showstopper. Colourful, nutritious and fresh with a beautiful citrus and soy dressing.
Prep Time: 15 Minutes Serves: 2-4
1 tablespoon soy sauce (we love Lee Kum Kee)
3 tablespoons avocado oil (we love Olivado)
4 cups mesclun salad leaves
2 baby cucumbers, cut into rounds
300g fresh salmon fillet, bones and skin removed
1 teaspoon sesame seeds, toasted (we love Alison’s Pantry)
Grate the zest of 1 orange and the lime into a large bowl. Squeeze 1 tablespoon of juice from the grated orange and 2 tablespoons of juice from the grated lime into the bowl (you may need a second lime to get the 2 tablespoons of juice). Whisk in the soy sauce and the oil. Set the dressing aside.
Use a sharp knife to slice the rind and pith from the remaining oranges. Working over a mixing bowl, cut the segments away from the membrane that holds the orange together. Place into a bowl. Add the mesclun leaves and cucumbers to the orange segments.
Using a large sharp knife, cut the salmon into ½ cm thick slices. Add the salmon to the bowl. Drizzle with the dressing, and toss gently to coat. Allow the flavors to meld for at least 2 minutes.
Divide the salad among 4 serving plates or one large platter. Sprinkle with the toasted sesame seeds, and serve.
