Salmon Sashimi with Ginger and Hot Sesame Oil

The chef dresses the salmon with a tangy citrus-soy sauce, adds a sprinkle of fresh ginger and chives, and then submerges it in a hot sesame oil mixture, delicately cooking the salmon and infusing it with a delectable aroma and texture.


Ingredients

1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice 1 teaspoon fresh orange juice Twelve 1/8-inch-thick slices of salmon, cut into 2-inch squares (1/4 pound) One 1/4-inch piece of fresh ginger, sliced paper-thin and cut into thin matchsticks (about 24 pieces) 1 tablespoon snipped chives 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil 1 teaspoon sesame oil 1 1/2 teaspoons roasted sesame seeds 2 tablespoons cilantro leaves

Directions

  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.
