My weekend was full of recipes and shoots at home and I loved every minute of it. Although I love shooting for restaurants, it was fun to be back in my kitchen doing my own thing. I'm especially excited to share this super easy sashimi salad recipe with you. If you're obsessed with sushi like I am, you may be looking for ways to satisfy the sushi craving without breaking the bank. This salad is perfect! You can use any fish you'd like. I used smoked salmon which you can find at your local market or grocery store. It's a really flexible recipe too, because you can add or eliminate whatever your stomach desires to make it your go-to sashimi salad.
It calls for lightly toasted sesame seeds, which I hadn't done before. Be careful doing this because they toast up really quickly and it's easy to burn them. They become slightly fragrant when they're ready (within a couple minutes) and although they're tiny seeds, they definitely add a subtle, nutty flavor to the salad. The best part is the citrus-soy dressing. I hadn't tried the combination of citrus and salty before and it was delicious. Yum!
