Grilled Fish with Carrot, Yacon & Seaweed Salad

It was cold and windy on Sunday but that did not deter me from visiting our local Winter market at Mapleton. Although there were not many produce stalls,  I did find some local & organically grown Chinese Cabbage (Wong Baak) and Daikon for making Kim-chee, Yacon and Black Radishes, some of which I used to create a Japanese style salad to go with the grilled salmon.
