A delicious combination of salmon fillet, smoked salmon and canned salmon combined with a delicate touch of Japanese Gomasio.
Gomashio (also spelled gomasio) is a dry condiment, similar to furikake, made from unhulled sesame seeds and salt. It is often used in Japanese cuisine, such as a topping for sekihan. It is also sometimes sprinkled over plain rice or onigiri. Some commercially sold gomashio also has sugar mixed in with the salt.
