TIP OF THE DAY: Sashimi Salad

Love sashimi? Looking for a light lunch or first course? Make sashimi salad.

Pick up some of your favorite raw fish from your fishmonger—salmon, tuna and yellowtail, for example. You can also add cooked varieties, such as shrimp and squid.

Then, create a salad of choice:

  • Western-style salad of mixed greens
  • Japanese-style salad of seaweed, mizuna or microgreens, grated daikon and carrot
  • Either style embellished with avocado, cucumber, an Asian-style vinaigrette and a sprinkle of sesame seeds
    Some Asian markets, fish markets and even supermarkets carry wakame salad. Wakame, pronounced wah-kah-MAY, is a type of seaweed; for wakame salad, it is marinated in vinegar and seasonings. If you can’t find it, you can substitute a fresh herb like cilantro.
