I made this tonight along with Sushi-rice Salad. We liked it pretty well. The salmon was very good. DH thought the cucumbers were too vinegary and overpowered the salmon. I didn't think so, but I tend to like vinegary/acidic foods more than he does. I thought that the mint was delightfully fresh tasting with the salmon and cukes. My 3-yr old DS gobbled up the salmon but didn't touch the cucumbers--but then he usually won't eat cukes, so that's not necessarily a reflection on the recipe. It wasn't at all difficult to make and it looked lovely. I'll make it again, but perhaps water down the vinegar a little.
This was very nice! I really enjoyed the browned sesame seeds on the salmon. I served with Thai green beans and baked potato. Thank you Susie!
GREAT. This was so fast to make, it was almost on the plate within seconds. The salad is fantastic and prep time is about 5 minutes or less. I let it stand for about 30 minutes and that blended all flavours so well. I like the mint taste and the chili here. It is different, fresh and spicy. It would make a great salad on its own. I seeded the cucumber, so that the salad remains more on the dry side as I like it. For the salmon: I only broil it for a few minutes. I like salmon not so well done and I omit the step od searing it first. It was great. The added seasme seeds work great and gave a little nutty note to the fish. Together with the salad this was a fantastic fish dish with great flavours.
