By Peggye Marks on Aug 05, 2022

King Salmon tataki is a favorite of chefs as it is a good source of protein, healthy fats and has a melt in your mouth texture. It can be beautifully served with vegetables.

To Serve

1. To make the dressing, combine the coriander roots, soy sauce, sugar, honey, ginger, garlic and chili paste in a pan and heat to infuse and reduce to a syrup-like consistency. Remove from the heat, pass through a sieve and leave to one side.

2. In a bowl combine the crème fraiche, wasabi mustard and a pinch of salt and whisk until thick with soft peaks. Leave to one side.

3. Brush the salmon with a small amount of olive oil. Place a non-stick pan on high heat until it starts to smoke.

4. Then very gently place the salmon into the pan and allow to sear for 5-8 seconds. Turn and sear the salmon on all sides. Remove from the pan and rest for 5 minutes. Slice the salmon into medium-thick slices and brush with the soy glaze. Sprinkle the salmon with furikake. Is now ready to serve.


1. Spread a spoonful of the wasabi mustard crème fraiche on the bottom of the plate. Top with the salmon slices. Garnish with slices of pickled cucumber, pickled shallots, salt, and chives.
