Quick Food: Salmon Sashimi Salad by Majnouna Quick Food: Salmon Sashimi Salad by Majnouna
:pointl: Check out the book!

This one's a bit fancy but why not? The dressing ingredients are a bit of an investment the first time, but they go a long way: now that I have them, anytime I have a craving for this, I just need to go get fresh salmon and cucumber (I couldn't find spring onions the first time so I got a jar of dry-frozen chives – they work just as well and will last a while). I can easily make a dozen salads before I run out of anything else.

This comment comments.deviantart.com/1/3563… makes a good point about ensuring your fish is fresh before you eat it raw; personally I use my nose, but don't take my word for it, make sure it's proper to eat without cooking!

I love sashimi and this recipe sounds like it would be amazing! I'd add avocados in too since I love them and they go well together!

Miso paste, right?

Also, can you replace Salmon with any other fish?

Yes miso paste :) Yes I don't see why not, if you can get your hands on other super fresh raw fish.

Does the salmon have to be raw, or can I cook it first?
Reply

Yes it has to be raw, otherwise it's not a sashimi salad is it! But I guess you could boil it or something.

If it's hard to find reliable raw fish where you are, I recommend just ignoring this recipe :) There's really no point making it with cooked fish. But I have a smoked salmon recipe coming up :D

aw damn if only i were living on my own >w<

I'm the only one in my family who would try raw fish for this. and since I'm in a family of 8 (oldest of 6 kids @_@) and fish is expensive Im not really at liberty to experiment with the fish. *sobsforever*

Ill have to try a cooked-fish varition fo this, this looks like a very tasty mix-up for our fridays xD (we don't eat meat on fridays so Im looking for various fish/vegetable recipes)

Aw darn, that sucks! But I don't think there's a point in doing this with cooked fish, unless maybe you boil it so it doesn't develop a fishy taste... Dunno! :(

I f you don't mind me asking, can I find sesame oil, miso and sesame seeds in a regular grocery store? We don't have an Asian market around here. :XD: I would love to try this, it looks so divine. c:

I don't know what a regular grocery store is like in your area, but if I found them in a supermarket in Beirut, your chances are good! Any Asian section in a store should have them. I'd be very surprised if you didn't find sesame seeds easily as they're available worldwide, and if they sell soy sauce it's very likely sesame oil will be nearby, but you can always use olive oil if really stuck. Miso may be more difficult, but if they have boxes of just-add-water packets to make miso soup, you can use that.

In Denmark we usually get our salmon from the Norwegian salmon "farms" (so, by the way, do the Japanese). In Denmark we have a governmental health department law saying that all fish *must* have been frozen for x hours below y degrees C (don't remember the exact measures, but it's app. 24 hours in a normal freezer). I recommend this, as fish carries a lot of diseases, worms and other. Even fish shops must follow this rule when selling cuts of fish for sushi. So I know from experience that sashimi can taste very good even when it's been frozen. I lived in Japan for half a year and was invited a few times to very local, quite expensive sushi restaurants. And I honestly can't taste the difference from never frozen to high quality frozen salmon or tuna.

Only thing is, when you buy cheap frozen salmon in DK supermarkets, you usually get chunks and leftovers from the nice cuts, meaning it has lots of silver colored rims instead of the nice salmon colour, the texture's irregular and it's really only good for chopping up and making into fried fish meat balls. To sum it up: No, it doesn't have to be "sushi grade" fish, as long as it's very fresh - or frozen, without any smell when thawed. If you have a cut of salmon that looks appealing, take a bite and try. If you like it, eat the rest as sashimi. If not, fry, bake or steam cook it in tin foil. The only bonus you get from buying "sushi grade" is that the cut comes in a nice square cut with an extra beautiful pattern of white stripes in the rose meat, which will look great when served as nigiri, sashimi or "spread sushi". In this recipe, it's all going in a bowl anyway.

Enough with the salmon ;) What I really wanted to comment was: If you go all in and buy all the stuff for the (extremely delicious) dressing, you might end up asking the following questions:

- White or red miso paste? Most recommend white, being more often used in Western countries, the red is very, very salty in comparison. If you get a big bag of paste, put half in the freezer: It'll last nearly forever, and fun fact: Even when frozen, it's still quite soft, so use can dispense and use it directly.
- My sesame oil taste of nothing? In the East Asian kitchen, the oil is made from roasted sesame, different from the neutral sesame oil used in similar ways to olive or canola oil. It even comes in a hot chili variant.
- What if I can't get mirin? Mirin is a kind of vinegar, very sweet from sugar alcohols (though not directly alcoholic). "Cooking sake" is another good choice, a little less sweet tasting and perhaps easier to get hold of. Real sake is also very delicious in any dressing! :drool: Under no circumstances use "sushi zu", this is also a kind of rice vinegar but it's sour and only used to stir into newly cooked sushi rice :)

Majnouna: TY! for sharing all your beautiful and saliva-inducing ;) recipes!

I don't know to buy sushi-grade salmon here, but I'm going to try this with cooked salmon for now.
Question though, what could I sub for the cucumbers? Cukes (and bell peppers too) and I are not the best of friends.

Can you find frozen raw salmon? That'll work too and be safe. Cooked has a flavor of its own and I don't know if it'll work so well, though of course if you want to try, let me know how that goes. You could just leave out the cucumbers, or, if they're avaiable where you are, how about some fresh edamame? Just for a touch of freshness.

I ended up making it with cooked tuna and it turned out pretty good! I subbed in fresh sugar snap peas for the cucumbers, and they gave a nice crunch to it.

My husband asked around at work and found somewhere that does sell fresh seafood, so I'm going to try to find them this weekend and see what they have.

For the miso, would it be in powder or liquid form?
Reply
:iconmajnouna:
Majnouna Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2013  Professional General Artist
Neither, it's a paste! The easiest thing is to pick up miso soup packages: they come in small boxes that contain 4-6 doses of paste that are meant to be added to a bowl of hot water for instant miso soup. Each dose is about 1 tbsp so it's the perfect quantity. They may have small quantities of other ingredients but that's in no way an inconvenience, and I found them in Beirut so they must be available in the world food section of any average-sized supermarket :D

Yes! Look in the refrigerated or frozen section. The packs will say "salmon fillet". Make sure it's as freshly caught as possible.
