Nutty Miso Sauce

1/3 cup Natural Almonds

1/3 cup Walnuts

1/3 cup hot water

1/3 cup miso paste

Juice of 1 lemon

Sesame Salmon

6 x 180g portions skinless, boneless salmon fillet

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

3/4 cup Sesame Seeds

Sunflower oil for frying

Sprigs of coriander, to garnish



To make sauce, grind nuts to a paste in a mini food processor. Add water, miso and soy sauce and process to combine.


Season salmon on both sides with salt and pepper. Spread sesame seeds on a plate. Press salmon portions in the sesame seeds, to coat evenly all over.


Heat a little oil in a large frying pan. Add salmon to the pan; cook over medium heat for 2-3 minutes then turn over and cook for another 1-2 minutes for medium-rare (cook a little longer if you prefer well done).


Serve salmon garnished with coriander, and the Nutty Miso sauce on the side.
