About the Recipe

Eating sashimi is a sensual experience and none more so than salmon sashimi - the flesh of the salmon is quite heavy and a little oily on the tongue. I like to dress up sashimi with something more than just soy sauce, (sashimi deserves it, after all!) In this recipe, I used a dressing of soy sauce with mirin, lemon juice and a little sugar. Combined with the tang of wasabi rocket leaves, this dish really does become a treat for the senses. (If you can't find wasabi rocket, you can use plain rocket / ruccola as a substitute.)


200g sashimi grade salmon

for the dressing:

1/2 tbsp lemon juice

1/2 tbsp mirin

1 tsp sugar

1/2 tbsp vegetable oil

1 tbsp soy sauce

5-6 wasabi rocket leaves


thinly slice the salmon (or ask your fishmonger to do this for 


to make the dressing:
