Hawaii's Kitchen

Salmon sushi bursts
with flavor

Dishes prepared by D.K. Kodama of Sansei Seafood Restaurant & Sushi Bar and Troy Teruya of Catch of the Day on "Hawaii's Kitchen" this week. The show aired at 5:30 p.m. Sunday on KHON/Fox.

Panko Crusted Ahi Sashimi

Chef D.K. Kodama

2 sheets nori
1 ounce rice
2 ounces fresh arugula
10 ounces fresh salmon
Pinch of salt
4 ounces tempura batter
4 ounces panko flakes
Vegetable oil for frying
Black sesame seeds
Finely chopped chives
>> Soy Wasabi Butter:
1 tablespoon ginger, crushed
1 teaspoon shallots
4 ounces white wine
1 teaspoon lime juice
2 ounces heavy cream
1/4 pound unsalted butter
3 tablespoons Thai chili sauce
1 ounce wasabi paste
3 ounces shoyu

To make Soy Wasabi Butter: Sauté ginger and shallots, add wine and lime juice, then reduce by half. Add cream and reduce again by one-third. Whip butter into the reduction and strain. Stir in chili sauce. Mix shoyu and wasabi paste together and whip into butter sauce (until sauce turns light brown but not too salty). Add a sprinkle of black sesame seeds and a dash the chopped chives.

On the top 1 inch of each nori sheet, spread half the rice (about 2 grains high). Lay half the arugula on the bottom third of the nori. Place half the salmon on the arugula. Season with salt. Roll tightly with a sushi rolling mat. Dip each roll in tempura batter. Coat with panko flakes and hold aside.

Place Soy Wasabi Butter on serving plates, sprinkle with black sesame seeds and chives.

Fry rolls, cut and place on sauce.
