This contemporary salad is full of exciting Asian flavours. The ocean trout must be very fresh and cooked at a low temperature to keep it moist.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
10 cm piece cucumber, seeded and finely sliced
2 cups cabbage, finely shredded
1/2 red capsicum, seeded and finely sliced
1 tablespoon salt
8 thin slices ginger
1 x 500g ocean trout fillet, skin and bones removed
2 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 lime, juiced
1/2 small red chilli, seeded and very finely sliced
1/2 garlic clove, finely chopped
4 tablespoons fresh coriander leaves
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds, to serve

Method

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cucumber, cabbage and capsicum. Sprinkle with salt then add the ginger and toss well to combine. Leave to stand for 1 hour then tip the vegetables into a colander and rinse under cold water. Drain well then dry the vegetables in a salad spinner or tea towel. Discard the ginger.
  2. Preheat the oven to 80°C and line an oven tray with baking paper.
  3. Cut the ocean trout into 12 slices. Season with half the soy sauce and 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil. Arrange the fish slices on the prepared oven tray and bake for 20 minutes.
  4. To make the dressing, combine the remaining soy sauce and vegetable oil with the sesame oil, lime juice, chilli, garlic and half the coriander leaves.
  5. Pour two-thirds of the dressing onto the vegetables. Add the remaining coriander leaves and toss well.
  6. Divide the salad between 4 plates and top each with 3 pieces of trout. Spoon the remaining dressing over the trout, sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and serve.
