Tomorrow at 7.15 on our instagram stories, the pair will be demonstrating how to make Roast Salmon with Sesame and Spring Onion Crust.
The ingredients you’ll need are:
1 kilo side of salmon or salmon steaks
2 tablespoon sesame seeds
3 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon Szechuan or black peppercorns, crushed
1 teaspoon sesame oil
8 spring onions
1 hot red chilli, finely sliced
10g ginger, julienne
2 garlic, finely sliced
2 tablespoon tamari or soy sauce
Heat the oven to 200oC/ fan 180oC/400oF/gas mark 6. Cut the green parts off the spring onions and then slice them lengthways into strips, keeping one end intact. Put into a bowl cold water to soak – they will curl. Cut the white parts diagonally and set aside. Toast the sesame seeds in a dry frying pan until golden brown, set aside.
Put the salmon onto a roasting dish. Brush with 1 tablespoon of the oil and scatter over salt and the pepper. Roast for 15 to 20 minutes or until firm to the touch on the thickest part and cooked through. Transfer to a serving plate and keep warm.
Heat the remaining oil and sesame oil over a high heat and fry the chilli, white parts of the spring onion, garlic, ginger for just a few minutes until lightly golden. Stir in the tamari, as soon as it bubbles pour over the salmon and dress with sesame seeds. Drain the green spring onion curls, pull them apart and scatter over the salmon.
