Inspired by Tetsuya

Here’s another salmon dish for the books. Inspired by the Tartare of Ocean Trout with Sushi Rice, Avocados and Grapes recipe that is in his self titled book Tetsuya, I decided modify it to make it more affordable by substituting various ingredients. I found super fresh ocean trout of sashimi grade hard to find and hence I used salmon which is more easily available. In addition to that, since we were on a Japanese motif, I added toasted sesame seeds and nori into the rice, so the end product was a little more of my concoction inspired by Tetsuya. Here is how it goes …

Tartare of Salmon with Sushi Rice, Tobikko and Grapes
Serves 4

4 tablespoons finely diced salmon
2 tablespoons steamed sushi rice
½ teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
20 green grapes, peeled, quartered and seeded
grated zest of ½ lemon
2 tablespoons of tobikko
2 tablespoons of wasabi Mayonnaise
Nori for garnish


In a bowl, mix together the salmon, rice, sesame seeds, grapes and lemon zest.
Add the tobikko and wasabi mayonnaise.
Divide between 4 serving plates and garnish with a sprinkling of nori.

* I found that my grapes weren't sweet enough and hence, when I made this dish again, i left out the grapes.
