Convenient Fish Salad in Scallion Sauce

Convenient Fish Salad in Scallion Sauce

As a convenient short-cut, I am using cooked & vacuumed buri (yellowtail) fish fillet cooked in teriyaki sauce. You can try looking for them at Japanese supermarket or convenience shops.



This sauce can be made in advance as part of meal prep, as it can be kept in the fridge for 2 weeks. To use, let the sauce thaw at room temperature or in a hot water bath. It is perfect when spread over cooked fish or chicken or as a sauce condiment. 

  • 40 ml olive oil (or peanut oil)
  • 100 grams chopped Japanese scallions/”negi”/green onions (usebottom white portion)
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 1 tbsp pure sesame oil
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt to taste
  • 3/4 tsp chicken seasoning powder to taste; if not using, add more salt to taste


  • 1 serving (40g or more) salad mix washed and spun dry
  • 1 piece cooked fish fillet warmed in microwave
  • 2 tbsp cooked corn niblets
  • any salad toppings (I used sliced cucumber & cherry tomato)
  • 1 lemon wedge
  • 1 tsp chopped spring onions
  • 1-2 tbsp any favourite salad dressing on the side


  1. Make scallion sauce. Heat olive oil and sesame oil in wok, then add chopped scallions (white portion) and grated ginger. Fry scallions briefly until soft and aromatic. Season to taste with salt and chicken seasoning powder. Set aside 1 heaped tablespoon + a small saucer of scallion sauce. Leftovers can be kept in the fridge for 2 weeks.
  2. Line salad plate with salad leaves. Place fish in the center of the plate. Spread a generous spoonful of scallion sauce over the fish. Garnish with the rest of the salad ingredients. Serve salad dressing & extra scallion sauce at the side.

Cooking Note(s):

  1. The scallion sauce will be more aromatic with pure peanut oil, but since there is quite a lot of oil used, I personally prefer to use healthy olive oil instead.
  2. You can use any instant salad dressing in the fridge (my to-go dressing is this calorie-half goma dressing). But on this day, I made a quick sesame-soy dressing as it goes well with the fish.
