When cool, brush with egg wash. Wrap with the Katifi paste to form two nests with the salmon portions in the middle. Sprinkle the fish with the mixed vegetable brunoise and brush the salmon portions and Katifi paste with melted butter. Place on the plank and roast until paste is golden brown. Remove to two plates, sprinkle with the sprouts, and coat with the dressing.

For dressing: Place all ingredients in a blender at high speed for 1 minute. SERVINGS:2 servings From:Executive Chef Kevin Graham, Nevada Nick’s, Las Vegas PHOTO CREDIT:Photo Credit: STOLT SEA FARM, INC.
