This recipe was inspired by the myriad herring preparations Trotter encountered while in Sweden.
There is nothing like the crispy seared skin of salmon to augment the rich flavor of the meat. This preparation is made particularly appealing by the luscious little Olympia oysters from Washington State. The exotic-tasting broth, accented by the shiso and the ginger, allows the beautiful flavors of the salmon and the oysters to shine through. The hijiki seaweed adds a wonderful crunchy contrast to the silky oysters. A little bread may be appropriate to sop up every bit of sauce!Plus: More Seafood Recipes and Tips
This is an especially easy dish to prepare and to serve. I merely take tomatoes that have been hollowed-out and roasted, fill them with a tabbouleh-like salad and heat them up in the oven for a few minutes. They work perfectly as a course by themselves or as an accompaniment to salmon or swordfish. Satisfying Vegetarian Recipes
