  1. Step 1

    To make the sesame-miso dressing, in a blender, combine the yoghurt, vinegar, miso, vegetable oil, soy sauce, sugar, ginger and sesame oil and blend until smooth. (Alternatively, whisk the ingredients in a bowl – the dressing will just be less creamy.)
  2. Step 2

    Sprinkle salt all over salmon. Place sesame seeds on a plate. Press the top side of the salmon portions into sesame seeds to coat. Heat the vegetable oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add the salmon, sesame-side down, and cook for 3 mins or until sesame seeds are toasted and golden brown. Flip salmon over and cook for a further 2-3 mins or until the salmon is cooked through with a rosy centre.
  3. Step 3

    Arrange the lettuce leaves on a serving platter. Sprinkle the tomatoes, avocado, cashews, coriander and mint over the lettuce. Top with salmon and drizzle with some of the sesame-miso dressing. Serve salad with remaining sesame-miso dressing.
