Every time I had salmon sashimi, I’d always think to myself, “This would be SO good if I laab it!” So finally I tried out my culinary dream, and it’s even better than I thought it would be! Spicy, herbaceous, fresh, light, healthy, gluten-free, not to mention it is a show stopper when you bring it out to the table!
In this video I also review how to make toasted rice powder (or what I call “magic powder”) which is the most important ingredient in a laab.
Most importantly, make sure you use good quality, sushi-grade salmon that is super fresh for this dish!
