Ocean trout poke on matcha rice

AT A GLANCE

  • Serves 4 people

Matcha brings a gorgeous earthiness to the sushi rice in this poke, contrasting with the sweetness of the trout and tang of the ruby grapefruit dressing.

  • 400 gm sushi rice, rinsed
  • 1 tsp matcha powder (see note), dissolved in 50ml hot water
  • 150 gm podded edamame
  • 350 gm sashimi-quality skinless ocean trout fillet, diced
  • 1 small Lebanese cucumber, thinly sliced on a mandolin
  • 2 radishes, trimmed, thinly sliced on a mandolin
  • Tobiko (see note) and coriander cress, to serve
  •  
  • Ruby grapefruit-tamari dressing
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp ruby grapefruit juice
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp tamari
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp finely grated ruby grapefruit rind
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
01   Place rice, 500ml water and 1 tsp sea salt in a saucepan, bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to low, cover with a tight-fitting lid and cook without uncovering for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and stand covered for 10 minutes, then mix in matcha.
02   For ruby grapefruit-tamari dressing, shake ingredients in a jar to combine.
03   Cook edamame in a saucepan of boiling salted water until tender (1-2 minutes), then drain, refresh and drain.
04   Divide warm rice among serving bowls, top with trout, edamame, cucumber and radish, drizzle with dressing to taste, scatter with tobiko and coriander cress and serve.
NoteMatcha powder is available from specialist tea shops, Japanese grocers and health food shops. Tobiko, flying fish roe, is available from select fishmongers. If it’s unavailable, substitute salmon roe.
