shichi-mi tōgarashi (七味唐辛子) smoked salmon

my version -- served with braised carrots, black mushroom, ginger/soy dressings; and Soba/dashi, pickled veg, cucumber/radish salad...


For this particular recipe I used Togarashi seasoning, also known as Japanese Seven Spice or Shichimi. Togarashi has a variety of dried chili peppers and other seasonings like orange peel, black and white sesame seeds, Japanese pepper, ginger, poppy seed, seaweed, and various other spices depending on what brand you buy.
"Smoked Salmon is a great way to enjoy wood fired meats without having to labor over the grill all day. Since it only takes a relatively short amount of time to cook, this is a popular dish amongst seafood lovers who own a pellet grill or smoker. The salmon fillets are marinated with sweet and savory Japanese ingredients and then cooked over a cedar plank or wood chips to infuse wood flavor and protect the skin from the grill. "
