From: EatingWell Magazine, May/June 2016

A twist on the classic Japanese dish, this healthy fish recipe swaps wild salmon for the traditional tofu. This agedashi gets extra kick from shichimi togarashi, a Japanese chile pepper blend, available in well-stocked markets or online. Serve alongside brown rice or udon noodles and a seaweed salad.

  1. To prepare dashi: Combine kombu, shiitakes and water in a medium saucepan; let stand for 30 minutes.
  2. Bring the kombu mixture just to a boil. Remove from heat. Transfer the kombu and shiitakes to a clean cutting board. Add bonito flakes to the dashi; return to a boil and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Strain (discard the bonito flakes). Rinse out the pot.
  3. Thinly slice the kombu; set aside. Discard any shiitake stems and thinly slice the caps. Return to the pot along with the strained dashi, soy sauce and mirin. Bring just to a boil over high heat. Remove from heat, add snow peas and cover to keep warm.
  4. To prepare salmon: Gently mix salmon with shichimi togarashi and lemon zest in a medium bowl. Add potato starch and toss to coat.
  5. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Carefully add the salmon; cook just until starting to brown, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
  6. To serve, divide the dashi mixture among 4 small bowls and top with the salmon, the reserved kombu and salmon roe, if desired. Serve with lemon wedges.
  • All wild salmon—and now some farmed—is considered a sustainable choice. For farmed, ask for fish that's raised in land- or tank-based systems. For more information about sustainable seafood, go to
