  • ½ cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • ½ cup white onions, sliced

Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


Marinate the salmon in the shoyu sauce for one hour.

Combine the rest of the ingredients in a bowl, with the salmon. Top with sesame seeds and serve.
