Ingredients

For Salmon

  • 2 6 oz sashimi-grade salmon fillets with skin
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger grated
  • 2 tbsp honey

For Sesame Soba

  • 4 oz dry soba noodles
  • 1 tbsp grapeseed oil
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1/2 head broccoli
  • 3 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 lime, juiced
  • 1 stalk green onion sliced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds toasted
  • sesame seeds garnish
  • lime wedges garnish

Instructions

  • Set up sous vide water bath, and set the temperature of the sous vide to 123.8°F.
  • Generously salt and pepper salmon fillets.
  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, mix sesame oil, olive oil, ginger, and honey.
  • In a quart-sized freezer-safe zip bag, add seasoned filets and seasoning mixture.
  • Using the water displacement method, seal and sous vide at 123.8°F for 20 minutes.
  • While the fish is cooking, prepare soba noodles according to package directions.
  • Meanwhile, in a skillet over medium-high heat, heat grapeseed oil.
  • Stir-fry garlic and broccoli until soft, about 6-8 minutes.
  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together tahini, sesame oil, olive oil, lime juice, green onions, cilantro, and toasted sesame seeds.
  • Mix into cooked and drained soba noodles, and toss in stir-fried broccoli and garlic.
  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Place a piece of parchment paper on the bottom of the skillet (the parchment paper will keep the skin from sticking to the pan).
  • Turn up the heat to high, and transfer salmon to the pan, skin side down.
  • Sear until skin is crisp, about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  • Divide soba noodles into two bowls; top with salmon, sesame seeds, and a lime wedge.
