5g                YAMAOWASABI ‘plain’


1.     Wash the salmon under cold running water, dry well with kitchen paper

3.     Insert the salmon and the marinade into a small freezer bag (or Ziploc) to store overnight in the fridge. Remove the air from the bag and seal tightly to ensure a good result

4.     10 minutes before serving, take out the packet of YAMAOWASABI from the freezer, break off the necessary amount to defrost

6.     Position your knife to cut the salmon against the grain of the fish at a 90 degree angle with the knife. As you cut the salmon, slide the whole length of the blade against the grain of the salmon. Cutting against the grain improves the tenderness.
