Salmon and dressing

Toasted pumpkin seeds

Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Store in a warm, dry place until required, or keep in an airtight container for up to 48 hours
Meanwhile, prepare the dressing. Whisk together the yuzu, argan oil, lime juice, mirin and chopped umeboshi in a bowl, then store in the fridge until required
  • 80ml of yuzu juice
  • 50ml of argan oil
  • 100ml of lime juice
