Citrus Glaze

Cucumber Salad

  • 2 cups cucumber, ?-inch thick strips
  • 1 cup red bell pepper, ?-inch thick strips
  • 1 cup carrots, ?-inch thick strips
  • 1 large Fuji apple, ?-inch thick strips
  • 2 Tbsp. NAKANO® Seasoned Rice Vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. orange juice
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • ¼ tsp. ginger, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • ? tsp. sesame oil


  • 24 oz. salmon fillet, cut into 4 (6-oz.) pieces
  • kosher salt, for seasoning
  • black pepper, for seasoning
  • 1 Tbsp. sesame seeds


  1. Combine citrus glaze NAKANO® Seasoned Rice Vinegar, orange juice, soy sauce and ginger slice in a small saucepan. Reduce over medium heat until a thick glaze similar to a maple syrup and is formed in about 15 minutes, about 1/3 of a cup of glaze. Make sure to regularly check as the reduction will happen quickly. Turn off heat and whisk in butter until melted and sauce is thickened. Set aside.
  2. Add the sliced cucumber, bell pepper, carrots and apples in a medium sized bowl. Combine and set aside.
  3. For the salad dressing whisk together NAKANO® Seasoned Rice Vinegar, orange juice, honey, minced ginger, olive oil and sesame oil until combined. Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed.
  4. Add half of the dressing into the cucumber salad mixture, toss to combine and allow to marinate. Reserve the other half of the dressing. Set salad aside or refrigerate if not eating within half an hour.
  5. Preheat oven to 400°F. Cover a sheet pan with foil and lightly grease with oil. Add salmon portions to the pan. Generously season with salt and pepper. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until salmon is tender and flaky. Drizzle some sauce on top of each fillet. Garnish with sesame seeds.
  6. Serve citrus glazed salmon with cucumber salad on the side, and rice if desired. Drizzle some additional dressing on top of the salad.
