Cod Salad with Sesame Dressing

Cod Salad with Sesame Dressing

I tend to run around doing errands on Saturday mornings so I like to keep lunches simple. Fairly often it ends up being a salad. Recently I have been trying to eat more sea food and when I came across a recipe for for a white fish salad with sesame dressing by Harumi Kurihara in Harumi's Japanese Cooking I had found my next Saturday lunch. This salad ended up being really tasty and full of sesame flavour. The warm and slightly crisp fish added a nice contrast in to the salad.
