Salmon, Miso, Corn, Celery Root, Bacon

Lots of interesting flavors in this dish, but everything came together quite well. I started out with the corn and celery root salad and then tried to figure out what else would go together with those flavors. I knew the salmon and the salad would work, but just that alone would've been a little too simple. After a little brain wracking, came up with this dish. The salad (fresh blanched corn, celery root, red onion, red bell pepper, jalapeno, red chili flakes, lime juice, verjus, olive oil, salt) was finished off with some micro shiso and rendered and diced lardons. The miso emulsion was a cross between a vinaigrette and an aioli. The rice was topped with yukari which is a dried red shiso powder.

Yum! Yum! Yum!

You are definitely barking up my tree with this one.

Tell me more about what you did with the miso emulsion. Did you marinate the fish using miso somehow or just finish with it?

Verjus ... yum again but I would be a bit worried that it would be overpowered by the lardons.

Tnx for sharing

The verjus flavor was subtle, but the acidity was there. I wanted some acid to balance out the sweetness of the miso and the saltiness of the bacon. I didn't want to use all citrus or a stronger vinegar like sherry because I didn't want to overpower the taste of the corn and celery root which have really delicate flavors. Also, I wanted something that would pair with the miso flavor.

The miso emulsion idea came from a twist on misoyaki salmon, and also from that episode on Top Chef where Lisa glazed the bacon with miso. So, I figured why not combine the three flavors? The emulsion was fairly simple: white miso, tahini, an egg yolk, rice wine vinegar, sugar, and canola oil. It wasn't as thick as an aioli but it wasn't as loose as a vinaigrette either.
