Salmon Chazuke

Salmon Chazuke

4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1½ cups short-grain white rice
  • ¾ teaspoon fine sea salt, divided
  • 4 bags genmaicha green tea or 4 teaspoons loose-leaf tea in a tea strainer
  • 1 pound salmon, cut into 4 small fillets
  • ½ cup Santé Garlic Almonds, roughly chopped
  • 4 teaspoons furikake
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced

Directions:

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine rice, ½ teaspoon salt, and 1¾ cups water. Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to low to simmer until rice is cooked through, about 15 minutes. Let sit, covered, off the heat for 5 minutes.
  2. While rice cooks, in a wide saucepan bring 4 cups water to a bare simmer (about 180℉). Take off the heat, add tea bags, and let steep 8 minutes. Remove tea, place pan back over medium heat, and add salmon. Cook at a very low simmer, basting salmon occasionally with tea, until salmon is cooked through, about 8 minutes. Remove salmon from liquid.
  3. Divide rice and green tea between bowls. Top with salmon and sprinkle with almonds, furikake, and green onion.
