Atari Goma Dipping Sauce Method
In a saucepan, combine the miso and the sake and cook, stirring continually, for about 30 minutes, or until the volume is reduced by half. Then cool completely. (This step may be done several days in advance.)
Place the cooled miso in a bowl and add the vinegar, dashi, sugar, Atari goma and mustard. Combine well.

Salmon Rice Paper rolls Method
Combine plum sauce, fish sauce & lime juice in a mixing bowl then add carrot, daikon & coriander making sure the sauce coats the vegetables.
Cut the salmon into approx 25mm wide strips
To prepare for the rice paper select a shallow tray that would fit the whole rice paper sheet, then ½ fill it with cold water. You will also require a cloth towel which will be used to dry the rice paper.
Removing one sheet of rice paper at a time (keep the rice paper covered or in the sealed packet as it will quickly start to crack if it is left out for too long), submerge the sheet into the tray with the cold water & remove immediately & place on the cloth towel allowing it to hydrate & soften, at this stage it should be pliable, pat dry to remove any excessive water.
On a separate chopping board cut the rice paper into strips approx 30mm wide, place on top of each rice paper strip the salmon & then place approx a teaspoon of vegetable mixture on to each rice paper salmon strip & roll up tightly. Store on a tray & cover with plastic food wrap.
Serve on a platter with the Atari goma dipping sauce – optional garnishes could be to tie the rolls with spring onion & top with salmon roe.
Dried rice paper wrappers are available in Asian Food Stores & generally sold in packets of 10 sheets which are typically round & white (25cm diameter). Always check the packet to insure there are no sheets that are visibly broken.
