{{totalReview}}
I actually like to make this dish in winter, when I crave a little colour on my plate. The pepper salsa replaces a tomato salsa, which in winter is hard to make taste like it’s summertime ripe-tomato partner.

Instructions

  1. Prepare salsa

    • Toss the cucumber, raspberries, red onion, rice wine vinegar, sugar together with the coriander, mint and sesame oil and season salt and pepper to taste.

  2. Dip and cook sesame seeds on salmon

    • Heat a large, oven-proof sauté pan over medium-high heat and add olive oil.
    • On a plate, pour and spread sesame seeds and season with salt and pepper. Stir and mix well.
