Going Japanese

Recipe by Edo Sushi
Serves 2

2 Salmon fillets, fresh, cut into 1cm strips
Plain flour
Salt & pepper
Vegetable oil
Teriyaki sauce
Boiled Japanese rice
Salad and pickles to garnish

For the tempura, you can buy a ready-made batter mix or make up a 50:50 mix of plain flour and cornflour, then add a little water until the mixture becomes a very light, gloopy consistency.

Lightly season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper, dust with flour and then coat well in the tempura batter. Fry or deep fry (180°C) in batches for 2-3 minutes until crisp and golden. Drain on a paper towel.

Once the salmon tempura is complete, heat some teriyaki sauce in a pan and lightly coat the salmon tempura in the hot teriyaki sauce on both sides. Slide onto a bowl of hot Japanese rice, drizzling the remaining teriyaki sauce onto the rice. Garnish with a fresh side salad and a few pickles.
