Ingredients

For the adzuki bean paste:
For the salad:
For the spring roll:
For the caramel sauce:

Directions

Season the salmon with salt, pepper, and five-spice powder. Sear the fish-skin side first. Allow to get crispy. Flip the fish and allow coloring on the flesh side. Remove the skin and allow to marinate in soy. Reserve the salmon and crisp the skin in a hot pan or on a griddle until crispy.

For the adzuki paste: Sweat the ginger, garlic, and red onion and add the beans. Then cover with chicken stock. Add rice vinegar, orange juice, lime leaf, red pepper flakes, and mirin. Cook slowly until tender, about 2 hours. Puree in a food processor and add butter and allow to cool.

Prepare a salad with the shredded daikon and carrot and toss with the mirin, lemon, and oil as dressing.

Prepare the vegetable rolls by quickly sauteing all the vegetables quickly in sesame oil with ginger garlic and scallion added. Allow to cool, then some of the filling in egg roll wrappers, and seal with egg wash. Fry just before serving, and cut on a bias.

For the sauce, prepare a caramel using the sugar and a little water. To stop the caramel once the sugar is dark enough add the fish stock. Adjust with a little tamari, and finish with lime juice. The product should be thick but easily pourable.

Plate the salmon with some skin as garnish, the adzuki paste, salad, and a vegetable roll. Drizzle the plate with the sauce.
