Wash produce before use


Prep and char the tomatoes

In a dry large frying pan over medium-high heat, add the tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly charred and starting to blister, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool slightly. Wipe out the pan.
While the tomatoes cook, start preparing the remaining salad ingredients.


Prep and assemble the salad

  • Scrub or peel the daikon; cut into quarters lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick slices.
  • Peel the cucumber, if desired; cut the cucumber in half lengthwise and scrape out the seeds with a spoon. Cut the halves into enough ¼-inch pieces to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
  • Rinse the black-eyed peas.
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on the diagonal, keeping the white and green parts separate. Set aside the green parts for garnish.
In a medium bowl, toss together the daikon, cucumber, black-eyed peas, tomatoes, and white parts of the scallions with as much umami dressing as you like (set aside any remaining dressing for serving). Season with salt, if desired, and pepper. Let stand while you prepare the seafood.


Prep and cook the seafood

For the salmon or snapper:
  • Pat the fish dry with a paper towel; season with salt, if desired, and pepper.
In the same pan used for the tomatoes, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the fish, skin side down, and cook until lightly browned and the skin is crisp, 4 to 5 minutes. Turn and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate and sprinkle with as much shichimi togarashi as you like.

For the scallops:
  • Pat the scallops dry with a paper towel; season lightly with salt.
In the same pan used for the tomatoes, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil over high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the scallops and cook without turning until golden brown on one side and starting to turn opaque, 2 to 4 minutes. Turn and continue cooking for about 30 seconds for translucent or 1 to 2 minutes for opaque. Transfer to a plate and sprinkle with as much shichimi togarashi as you like.


Transfer the seafood and tomato salad to individual plates and garnish with the green parts of the scallions. Serve any remaining dressing and shichimi togarashi on the side.
