Sesame Salmon Appetizer

These sesame salmon hors d’oeuvres are super easy to make and will add a touch of vibrant color to your table.  For a salty and bold flavor, opt for the salted salmon as a base for the recipe. If you are looking to add a mild flavor appetizer to your dinner table, choose the sashimi-style salmon - it has a subtle scent of orange and the dish is so delicate that it melts in your mouth.

Preparing salmon:
Sashimi - style salmon:

1 lb fresh salmon fillet
a little bit over ½ cup sugar
a little bit over ½ cup salt
1 orange, sliced

Wash salmon in cold water and pat dry with a paper towel. Mix salt and sugar in a glass pan big enough to fit the fillet. Dip salmon in a mixture making sure all sides are covered with salt and sugar. Take the fillet out and shake the mixture off. Cover the salmon with orange slices and put it in a covered glass container in a fridge for 1 hour.
Discard the orange and skin the fillet.

Salted salmon:

Making appetizers: 

Sesame seeds
Black olives, pitted and sliced

Cut the salted salmon fillet in cubes. Heat the frying pan on a medium heat setting and cook sesame seeds for 1-2 minutes constantly stirring. Roll each cube in sesame seeds. Adjust the amount of seeds according to your taste. Place an olive slice on top of each hors d’oeuvre and secure with a skewer.
