Food52's contest this week is "Your Best Recipe With Tea" and I entered one that I call "Green Tea Chirashi (Scattered Rice)". It's sort of a deconstructed sushi recipe and involves tea cured salmon. I love cured salmon and make it often mainly with dill and vodka as part of the cure. It's very easy to do, but requires about 3 days "curing" time. Take a look at my recipe here:
And if you decide you want to go at it without tea, try substituting the tea and Mirin with equal amounts of vodka and dill or use your imagination. Just make sure you use the salt and sugar. Enjoy!
