1 bunch broccolini
2 tbsp. sesame oil
1 cup Asian black bean sauce

4. Rinse rice in water until the water runs clear. Place rice in colander and allow to thoroughly drain. Place rice in rice cooker and add rice vinegar and water. Cook until tender.

5. Place salmon on cutting board and spread edamame mixture on fillet; roll up like a sushi roll. Wrapsalmon roll in plastic wrap and then in aluminum foil. Refrigerate 30 min., allowing salmon to slightly harden.

6. Remove plastic wrap and aluminum foil from salmon fillet. Cut salmon into 7-oz. portions. Cut the nori sheets in half and wrap one half around each salmon portion (Should look like a large maki roll.)

7. Pan roast the salmon “maki” roll in a medium pan over medium-high heat for 4 min. on one side; turn and cook for 3 min. on other side. Place in oven and cook for 3 min. at 375°F.

8. Mound cooked rice on plate and shape with a cookie cutter. Sauté broccolini in sesame oil and deglaze with soy sauce. Place on top of rice and top with Salmon Maki. Spoon on 2 oz. black bean sauce. Garnish with pickled ginger, cilantro sprigs, coriander oil, and chop sticks.
