Hanoi-Style Salmon with Turmeric and Dill
In Vietnam, snakehead fish is used for this dish, but Hong Pham and his wife, Kim Dao--of ravenouscouple.com--love to make it with West Coast Copper River salmon. You can use the salmon and sides to create noodle bowls and spring rolls.
*To prevent gumminess, soak noodles 5 to 6 hours to remove starch, then boil 2 minutes in fresh water. Drain in a colander, rinse with cold water until cool, and spread on a kitchen towel to dry. Find black sesame rice crackers in Asian grocery stores (look for the fully baked type and briefly heat in oven or microwave before serving).
