I mostly know pickled ginger from having sushi – it's a great way to refresh the palate. I recently ordered salmon in a Parisian bistro and it came with pickled ginger, which I loved. Thanks to the freshness of the ginger, it is able to replace the well-known lemon wedge and makes an aromatic addition to the salmon marinated in soy sauce, ginger and garlic. I've used asparagus here, but broccoli or pak choi would also go beautifully.
