Teriyaki Fish and Mooli Salad
A healthy-ish recipe to get you in the feel-good mood!
For the fish, try salmon, tuna, mackerel, herring or monkfish.
2 fresh fish steaks
Sesame oil – to fry
Teriyaki sauce and marinade
1 generous tablespoon dark soy sauce
1 generous tablespoon Sake wine or dry wine
1 generous tablespoon mirin or sherry
2 twists pepper
Small pinch salt
Mix the teriyaki sauce ingredients together, use half to marinade the fish – 20 minutes should do it, reserve the rest for a dip
Heat a frying pan or chargrill with the tiniest splash of sesame oil and fry each side for 2 – 3 minutes until just under cooked.
Serve on the dressed mooli salad with the remaining dip.
1/4 small mooli
1 medium carrot
1 teaspoon sesame seeds (white or black)
1/2 fresh lime – juice
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
Shred or finely strip the vegetables (use a mandolin if you have one) and simply toss in the lime, vinegar, sesame seeds and salt.
Tip – if shredding or finely striping your vegetables is too much of a task simply grate.
Mooli is also known as a white radish or Daikon in Japanese cuisine, it’s like a giant white carrot with a fresh slightly spiced radish flavour. Mooli is great in stir-fries and pickles really well, too.
