Chef's Notes:
Ingredients – Nori, Dashi & Mirin can be found in most supermarkets however if not an Asian market will definitely have these items.
Salmon bellies – could be described in a similar fashion as tuna belly or as the Japanese call “Toro” which is the fatty part of the fish. In salmon it is very rich in Omega 3 oils & is very rich when eaten this way.
Flavor/Texture – the flavor of the salmon is captured extremely well with the tempura process & the textural variance of crunchy tempura batter.
