+ Get your fishmonger to pin-bone the salmon for you or run your fingers across the fish and pull out any protruding bones with kitchen tweezers.
++ Fried shallots and pickled ginger are available from the Asian section of your supermarket or Asian grocery stores.
+++ Serve with steamed rice or Japanese noodles, such as soba.
