This sashimi sallad is a Japanese favorite that we learned from one of our lovely guests this summer. It is truly a glorious way to have your fresh kingfish! A few steps and lots of love and you have a delicious dinner, lunch or entree! You may want to double the ingredients since everyone will love it!

One sliced spring onion.Japanese mayonnaise. Two large cloves of fresh garlic. 1/4 cup neutral cooking oil. 1/4 cup soy sauce. A splash of mirin to taste. Wasabi and Shichimi (japanese 7 spice blend)
