*makes two 6-oz portions

6 oz boneless skinless wild salmon

6 oz boneless skinless wild halibut

8 slivers of pickled ginger

1 cookie sheet lined with parchment paper


  1. Preheat oven to 400º. Cut salmon and halibut into four equal strips (approximately 1.5 oz). Each serving portion will have two pieces of salmon and two pieces of halibut.
  2. On the cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, lay two pieces of salmon horizontally side by side about 1″ apart.
  3. Place the two pieces of halibut vertically on top of the salmon. The top piece of halibut should have one end on top of the salmon with the other end under the other piece of salmon. The second piece of halibut is laid the opposite way, thus giving the weave effect.
  4. Tuck in four pieces of pickled ginger into each serving portion. Bake for eight to 10 minutes.
