Green bomb snapper poke

Green is good, especially in the form of crunchy raw snow peas and broccolini, seaweed  salad and piquant wasabi peas. The peppery kick of a wasabi vinaigrette is incredibly  moreish - adjust the heat level to suit your tastebuds.

400 gm (2 cups) sushi rice, rinsed 350 gm sashimi-quality skinless snapper fillet, diced 120 gm snow peas, trimmed and julienned 120 gm broccolini, tips coarsely chopped, stalks thinly sliced 100 gm seaweed salad (see note) Pea tendrils and wasabi peas, to serve   Wasabi vinaigrette 2 tsp wasabi paste 1 tbsp mirin 60 ml (¼ cup) vegetable oil 2 tbsp rice vinegar 1 tsp finely grated ginger
