Sake Poached Salmon with Somen and Fennel Salad:

Directions

Wasabi Salmon Salad Sandwich With Taro Chips:

Preheat a deep fryer to 275 degrees F. In a bowl, mix together the Wasabi Aioli, salmon and celery. Check for seasoning. Build the sandwiches on the bread and top with the tomato and lettuce. Slice on the bias. Fry chips until golden brown and crisp. Season lightly with salt.

Plating: Serve sandwich with taro chips.

Wasabi Aioli:

In a food processor, add wasabi paste, garlic, ginger, vinegar and yolks. While processor is on, drizzle in oil, slowly at first until it emulsifies then more quickly. Check for seasoning. Store in refrigerator.   

Sake Poached Salmon with Somen and Fennel Salad:

In a salmon poacher or large sauce pot, mix the sake, celery, carrot, onion, sugar, bay leaves, peppercorns, soy sauce and water to cover. Add the seasoned salmon and slowly bring the liquid to a simmer. Simmer for 3 minutes then turn off the heat. Let stand for 5 to 10 minutes depending on doneness desired. I prefer medium rare (5 minutes). In a blender, add ponzu, shallots, 1/2 tablespoon togarashi, soy and sugar. Blend on high speed and drizzle in the oil. Season with salt and pepper. In a large bowl, mix together fennel, somen and scallions and toss with enough vinaigrette to coat the salad. There will be some left over for plating. Check for seasoning.

Plating: On a large plate, place a mound of the salad and top with hot salmon. Drizzle on a little of the vinaigrette and garnish with remaining togarashi and fennel fronds.
