Directions
Wasabi Aioli:

In a bowl, mix together the wasabi aioli, salmon and celery. Check for seasoning. Build the sandwich with the tomato and lettuce. Slice on the bias. Fry chips until golden brown and crisp. Season lightly with salt.

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.

*RAW EGG WARNING

Food Network Kitchens suggest caution in consuming raw and lightly-cooked eggs due to the slight risk of Salmonella or other food-borne illness. To reduce this risk, we recommend you use only fresh, properly-refrigerated, clean, grade A or AA eggs with intact shells, and avoid contact between the yolks or whites and the shell.

Plating: Serve sandwich with taro chips.

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. Yield: 2 to 4 servings Drink Suggestion: Wakatake Daiginjo "Onikoroshi" Sake
