Japanese grilled salmon & seaweed salad

Japanese grilled salmon & seaweed salad

main courses | serves 4

1. Whack the grill up to high and line a shallow oven pan with foil. Lay the salmon skin-side down in the pan, spoon over the soy and honey and sprinkle with togarashi seasoning.
2. Place under the grill to cook for 15–18 minutes until dark, sticky and the salmon flakes easily when prodded. Remove from the grill, squeeze over the lime, and set aside.
3. In a small dry frying pan, fry the sesame seeds over a medium heat until just toasted, then set aside.
4. Place the dressing ingredients in a bowl and whisk until combined. Add the seaweed and spring onion and toss to coat, then do the same with the lettuce. Divide between plates, top with the flaked salmon and a scattering of toasted sesame seeds.

Note: You can buy dried seaweed salad and wakame seaweed at japanesekitchen.co.uk. There is a range of seaweed available: why not experiment and find one you like?
