1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon fresh orange juice
12 3mm thick slices of salmon, cut into 5cm squares (around 100 to 120 grams)
1 5mm piece of fresh ginger, sliced paper-thin and cut into thin matchsticks (about 24 pieces)
1 tablespoon snipped chives
2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 avocados, ripe, diced
1 1/2 teaspoons roasted sesame seeds

In a small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of the soy sauce with the lime and orange juices. In a medium bowl, toss the salmon with the remaining 1/4 cup of soy sauce and let stand for 1 minute, then drain. Arrange 3 slices of salmon on each plate and top with the ginger and chives.
In a small saucepan, heat the grapeseed oil with the sesame oil over moderately high heat until smoking, about 2 minutes. Drizzle the hot oil over the salmon pieces. Place some diced avocado on a plate and lay the chunks of salmon over them. Spoon the soy-citrus sauce on top. Sprinkle with the roasted sesame seeds and cilantro leaves and serve.
