Notes

Sauteed Cabbage: Sometimes, instead of rice or grain, we’ll serve this Furikake Salmon over a bed of sauteed cabbage. Heat 1 tablespoon seasame oil in a skillet. Add 1/4 cup thinnly sliced onion or shallot and saute over medium heat until fragrant. Add the shredded cabbage, season with salt and pepper and saute until just wilted. Add a tiny splash of soy sauce and rice vinegar, stir to coat, and set aside.

Mirin Substitue: 1 1/2 tablespoons water, 2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar, 2 teaspoons sugar, honey or maple. Use warm water if using honey– for easier mixing.
