Wolfgang Puck's Sesame Crusted Salmon
A Tasty Addition to Any Surf and Turf Menu
This is the Oscar version of the popular dish, "Surf and Turf," created by Chef Wolfgang Puck expressly for the 2002 Governor's Ball, the party where stars wine and dine at the Academy Awards.
It combines sesame-crusted salmon with celery root puree and New York steak with stir fried vegetables and Wasabi Sauce. Check out this surf and turf recipe for Sesame Crusted Salmon.
Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F.
In a small saucepan melt the butter with the ginger.
Brush the melted butter and ginger on the pieces of salmon. Roll the salmon in the sesame seeds. Place the salmon on an oiled sheet pan and refrigerate for about 15 minutes.
Place the salmon in the oven and roast until the sesame seeds are toasted golden brown and the salmon is rare inside, approximately 3 minutes.
