The salmon roe appetizer at Village Yokocho is a great representation of how sometimes the simplest preparations are the best. The chefs at Village Yokocho prepare this appetizer by soaking the freshest salmon roe in sake and tamari soy sauce. The marinated salmon roe is then served with freshly grated daikon radish, a shiso leaf and a slice of lemon for garnish. The salmon roe tasted very fresh and the marination was very balanced. The lighter, less salty tamari soy sauce accented the brininess of the salmon roe rather than overpowering it while the grated daikon radish provided slight bitterness and texture. If you like salmon roe, also known as ikura, you will enjoy this as an appetizer.
Cost of Salmon Roe Soaked in Sake and Tamari Soy Sauce: $6.50
