Dear SOS: I had the most wonderful lunch at Zov’s Bistro in Tustin. The sesame seed-crusted salmon is out of this world. I would love to treat my family to this recipe.
Dear Jenny: Chef-owner Zov Karamardian was happy to share this recipe, which calls for presenting the warm salmon on a bed of cool salad greens, papaya and blue cheese. She suggests trying variations on the salad ingredients, such as baby spinach and thinly sliced red onions or a slaw of shredded carrots and green and red cabbages.
Our tasters loved this dish. The sesame seeds give the salmon a delicious nutty crunch on the outside and a tender moist interior.
