1 teaspoon soy sauce

1 teaspoon sesame oil

3 tablespoons olive oil

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/3 pound line caught wild salmon, cut into small dice

1 tablespoon caper berries, finely chopped


  1. In a small bowl, combine tuna, 1 shallot, 1 teaspoon ginger, 1/2 teaspoon lime juice, soy sauce, 1 teaspoon sesame oil and 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil. Using a plastic spatula gently fold the ingredients together until just incorporated. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.
