Salmon Roulade with Tehina Sauce Recipe

Posted on 15th of September, 2010 by Lévana

Salmon Nori Roulades

Not nearly as complicated as the finished dish would suggest. My mother likes to joke that the gauze-wrapped fish looks like it just came out of the operating room, but there will be no hint of this alarming association at the table, as you will have removed all the patient’s bandages first!

You might want to make this dish with a large trout or bass too.

Ingredients:

1 whole side salmon, about 3 ½ pounds, skins off, bones out, tail cut off and reserved for another use

1 pound tilapia fillets (about 2-3)

1 egg

1/3 cup olive oil

4 medium shallots, peeled

Zest of 1 lemon

Good pinch nutmeg

Salt and pepper to taste

8 chives, minced

6 leaves nori

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Dry the salmon thoroughly with paper towels. Cut the white flat strip which runs the whole length of the salmon and discard. Butterfly the thick parts of the fish: you will obtain a larger thinner rectangle. In a food processor, process the tilapia, egg, oil, shallots, lemon zest, nutmeg, salt and pepper, until perfectly smooth. Fold the chives into the mixture. Cover the salmon completely with nori leaves (you will need 3 leaves). Spread the tilapia mixture over the salmon. Cover again completely with 3 leaves nori. Roll the rectangle tightly. Wrap the roll in cheesecloth, giving it 2-3 complete turns to keep the roll securely in place, and tie the ends with twisters. Transfer to a baking pan filled about 2 inches with hot water, and bake 1 hour. Chill, unwrap and slice, and serve with tehina sauce (recipe follows)

TEHINA SAUCE

1 pound silken tofu

1/3 cup toasted sesame oil

1/3 cup tehina

2 inch piece fresh ginger

1/3 cup soy sauce

1/3 cup rice vinegar

4 scallions, sliced very thin

Place all but last ingredient in a food processor, and process until smooth. Stir in the scallions

      So sorry I am not familiar with either word. The recipe is my own creation, as is each of my recipes!
