200gr thick slabs of watermelon

1 teaspoon olive oil

1 teaspoon soy sauce

1/2 teaspoon rice vineger

1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

Pinch seaweed flakes

1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger

a few pinches of Danish salt

chopped scallions

soy sauce


Preheat the oil in a dutch oven a little less if it starts to smoke. 

Place the slabs of the watermelon onto the skillet, taking care to watch for any sputtering of the water from the watermelon. 

Turn the heat down just a bit if there is a lot of sputtering. 

Allow to sear on one side for about 3 minutes, or until it has a nice color.

Flip and sear the other sides for 2-3 minutes more, or until they have a nice sear all over.

Transfer to a cutting board, and allow to slightly cool. 

Cut into 1/4-inch thick slices, and transfer to plates. 

Combine the seaweed flakes, rice vineger, soy sauce, lemon juice and grated ginger, then drizzle evenly over each slab, then sprinkle with a few pinches of smoked salt. 

Garnish with scallions and serve with soy sauce.
