I'm planning a small dinner party for some close friends. Originally I was thinking of doing a japanese type sunomono salad... something like this: http://big2beautiful.com/2010/08/japa... but with rice noodles as well. Then follow up with an assortment of sushi.
Problem is I'm having difficulties finding various types of fish that are fresh enough for sushi. I can still do the sunomono salad as the shrimps are cooked, and I might be able to get some salmon, but that's about all. Hardly enough for a 'variety' of sushi.
I then came across this dish which looks great: http://www.frombatoparis.com/2010/06/...
So two questions:
1. Assuming I can get salmon would following the sunomono salad with this sushi/ceviche fusion dish be too much acidity? Or do you think they would pair ok together?
2. Any alternate suggestions for a main dish that might pair well with either one of the above as an appy?
