My friend and foodie extraordinaire Tanah Jane Dowdle introduced me to this idea and I have shamelessly purloined it. Check out her latest exploits here.


Buy a 500g piece of fresh salmon side. Ask your fishmonger to remove the skin and the bones.

2 Dice the salmon into 1.5cm cubes.


3 Mix together 50g white miso paste, 10ml of tamari soy sauce and 1.5 tablespoons of prepared wasabi. Whisk this together and add a dash of sesame oil to finish.

4 Toast off some sesame seeds by placing them in a pan then putting the pan in a moderate oven and watching the seeds very carefully. The moment they start to colour, remove from the oven and cool.

5 Just before serving toss the salmon cubes in the miso mix. Remove the cubes after a couple of minutes and dust with the toasted sesame seeds.

6 Spike with your preferred skewer or toothpick and plate.
