Cooking Instructions:

Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick pan on high heat. Season the salmon with salt and fresh ground pepper. When the oil is very hot, place the salmon strips in the pan and cook for 2 minutes. Using a spatula carefully turn the salmon on the other side and sear for another minute on low heat. Remove salmon. In a medium salad bowl, whisk the remaining olive oil, lemon juice, horseradish, and ½ teaspoon of salt and freshly ground pepper. Add the julienned vegetables and the sliced mint leaves. Toss to coat. Soak the dry rice paper in a large bowl filled with room temperature water for 10 seconds. Then lay it flat on a clean kitchen towel. Place the julienned vegetables in the center of the rice paper forming a thin line leaving a 1 inch border on each end. Add the salmon on top of the vegetables then roll tightly. Slice at an angle and serve. Sprinkle with the black sesame seeds.
