Ponzu is a citrus and soy-based Japanese sauce. It’s a complex and tangy dressing that’s great for vegetables, chicken, and especially fish. The sauce’s tartness contrasts beautifully with the fattiness of the salmon. A simple side of sesame-flavored peppers and onions served over a bed of fluffy white rice make this dish an easy weeknight dinner that can be thrown together at a moment’s notice.
