Roast salmon belly fillet

This dish is called 'sake toro' in Asian cuisine when prepared with tuna belly, which is an expensive delicacy in Japan. Salmon belly is, however, underrated, which is a pity as the marbling of fat in the belly is very flavourful. Roasting the fish with a blowtorch produces a natural caramelising effect. Combines wonderfully with tangy, lightly acidic notes.
