1 people

Become a master at preparing raw fish. Simply dress salmon with a little citrus-soy dressing, then top it with fresh ginger and chives before bathing it in a hot sesame-oil mixture. The heat from the oil cooks the salmon just slightly, creating a luxurious texture and fragrance


  1. 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce

  2. 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice

  3. 1 teaspoon fresh orange juice

  4. Salmon, cut into 2-inch squares (1/4 pound)

  5. One 1/4-inch piece of fresh ginger, sliced paper-thin and cut into thin matchsticks (about 24 pieces)

  6. 1 tablespoon snipped chives

  7. 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil

  8. 1 teaspoon Asian sesame oil

  9. 1 1/2 teaspoons roasted sesame seeds

  10. 2 tablespoons cilantro leaves

  1. In a small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of the soy sauce with the lime and orange juices. In a medium bowl, toss the salmon with the remaining 1/4 cup of soy sauce and let stand for 1 minute, then drain. Arrange 3 slices of salmon on each plate and top with the ginger and chives.

  2. In a small saucepan, heat the grapeseed oil with the sesame oil over moderately high heat until smoking, about 2 minutes. Drizzle the hot oil over the salmon pieces. Spoon the soy-citrus sauce on top. Sprinkle with the roasted sesame seeds and cilantro leaves and serve.
