Ingredients

4 pieces salmon fillet, center cut, 4 ounces each, 1/4-inch thick (like a paillard)

4 sheets nori

2 avocados, sliced, lightly tossed with juice of 1 lime, salt, pepper and 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 cup all-purpose flour

3 eggs lightly beaten

2 cups panko, (Japanese bread crumbs)

Canola oil, for frying

2 shallots, roughly chopped

1 tablespoon fresh grated wasabi

1 tablespoon naturally brewed soy sauce

3 tablespoons lemon juice

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

3 cups prepped maitakes, lightly tossed in extra-virgin olive oil, seasoned with salt and pepper and grilled

Fleur de sel and black pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. Lay each piece of salmon on a sheet of nori (on a bamboo mat) towards the bottom half. Season and lay down avocado slices and roll tightly like maki sushi. Place flour, egg and panko in 3 separate dishes. Roll sushi in flour, then egg, then panko and fry at 375 degrees F until golden brown, about 3 to 5 minutes. Meanwhile, in a blender, add the shallots, wasabi, soy and lemon juice and blend. Drizzle in the oil and toss with grilled maitakes. Check for seasoning.
