  1. Rinse the sushi rice really well and put in a small saucepan covered with 200ml cold water. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 10 mins with the lid on. Remove from the heat and keep the lid on for 15 mins before transferring to a serving bowl.

  2. Meanwhile, pour boiling water over the edamame and leave to defrost until the rice is cooked. To make the dressing, combine all the ingredients, then set aside.

  3. Heat the sesame oil in a non-stick pan and add the nori. Cook for 1-2 mins on a medium heat until crisp.

  4. To assemble the salad, drain the edamame, then tip onto the rice along with the pomegranate seeds and salmon. Fan out the avocado slices on top and sprinkle over the black sesame seeds. Drizzle over the dressing and top with slices of sushi ginger, if you like.

Yes you can use raw salmon, provided as you say it is very fresh sushi quality.

Questioning calories - is this really 862 calories? That's more than a big fat curry!

We have checked back to the feature in the magazine and the calories are correct. The ingredients include avocado, beans, oil, pomegranate molasses and rice - these are all quite high in calories, which contribute to the overall total.
