"New Style Sashimi" is one of Chef Nobu's signature dishes, and it's one of our favorite ways to enjoy salmon: thinly sliced with a garlicky, gingery bite, tangy and full of umami from a splash of soy sauce and ponzu, seasoned with a sprinkle of Everything Brooklyn Bagel, then ever-so-slightly seared with hot oil - this is a dish we come back to again and again.
- 1 LB or so of Salmon - the fresher the better
- 3 Spring onions
- 2 Tbs Everything Brooklyn Bagel Seasoning
- 3 Cloves Garlic
- 1 1"x1" Chunk of Ginger
- 1 1/2 Tbs Soy sauce
- 1 1/2 Tbs Ponzu sauce
- 6 Tbs Extra virgin olive oil
- 2 Tbs Sesame oil
- Wash and pat dry salmon and place in the freezer for around 6 minutes - this will firm up the flesh and make it easier to slice thinly.
- Peel and finely mince garlic and ginger, and reserve.
- Rinse and finely slice green onions lengthwise into long, skinny strips, and reserve.
- In a non-reactive saucepan, bring olive oil and sesame oil up to medium high heat.
- Take salmon out of the freezer, remove skin, and slice as thin as you can into small strips. Length and width needn't be uniform, but you do want all the slices to have approximately the same thickness.
- Arrange salmon on a plate or serving tray, and sprinkle over garlic and ginger, then top with green onion slivers.
- Shake on Everything Brooklyn Bagel Seasoning, then drizzle over soy sauce and ponzu.
- Carefully drizzle on near-boiling oil, and serve immediately. If you want to make a show out of it, pour the oil on table-side - it will sizzle and pop as it sears the salmon.
