Ingredients

5 cups olive oil

2 heads ginger, smashed

1 head garlic, smashed

1 bunch scallions, slivered

4 6-ounce pieces salmon

Sauce:

2 cups Japanese rice, steamed

3/4 cup mirin

2 scallions, slivered

1/2 cup dried cherries

1/2 cup dried blueberries

1 sheet nori, crumbled

1/2 cup lemon juice

1/2 cup fish stock

1/4 cup ice wine (from British Columbia)

3/4 cup grapeseed oil

1/2 cup air-dried corn

Directions

  1. In a saucepan, bring the olive oil up to 160 degrees. Add the smashed ginger, garlic and scallions. Take the mixture off the heat and allow it to infuse for 2 hours. Strain.
  2. Steam the rice and then season with the mirin. Once cooled, mix in the slivered scallions, dried in a saucepan. Bring the olive oil up to 160 degrees. Add the smashed ginger, garlic and scallions. Take the berries and seaweed.
  3. To make the sauce, bring the lemon juice, fish stock and ice wine to a boil. Remove from heat and blend in the grapeseed oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. To poach the fish, bring the poaching oil up to about 160 degrees in a deep saucepan. Season the salmon with salt and pepper and gently immerse the entire piece of fish in the oil. Allow to poach gently for about 5 minutes or until rare-medium.
  5. To Plate: While the fish is cooking, place rice salad on plate and drizzle with lemon sauce. Put poached fish on rice salad when it's done being poached.
