While a Poke bowl is usually made with Sashimi grade fish, I’m not into raw style fish at all, I just can’t take the texture. This is a lovely take on it though with a rainbow of colors in the salad and the salmon just cooked enough to leave it lovely and tender and moist. This dressing makes loads and will keep in the fridge for a week or so. Its delicious on any salads or crunchy veg as well as making the perfect marinade for the salmon…. Good fats, loads of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants…. Health on a plate.

Serves 2
2-4 Salmon Darnes
1/3 of the dressing
1 tbsp sesame seeds

Marinade the salmon in the portion of dressing for a couple of hours if possible, in the fridge.

Marinade ingredients
3 tbsp miso paste
1 clove of garlic peeled chopped and mashed
3 tbsp of mirin
Grated zest of 1/2 lemon
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp soy
1 tbsp ginger chopped and mashed
100ml oil
30ml rice or white wine vinegar
1tsp sugar
salt & pepper to taste

1 carrot peeled and grated
