SALMON TARTARE WITH CHERRIES AND MINT


SALMON, CHERRIES AND MINT TARTARE

SALMON, CHERRIES AND MINT TARTARE



I can officially declare myself an obsessed fan of tartares, carpaccios and any other raw dish that exist. I just love them. Anywhere I go if they are on the menu I can't help being tempted, specially now it's summer and we appreciate this type of light dishes...

I like a lot the classic combinations such as salmon and avocado but I wanted to try something different with some seasonal fruit. I've previously tasted different combinations with other frut like mango, apple and even strawberries wich are really good so I assumed cherries would be a great choice.

CHERRIES

SALMON, CHERRIES AND MINT TARTARE


These cherries are from a beautiful Spanish region called Valle del Jerte, very well known for this pretty fruit and their smoked paprika (Pimentón de la Vera). These cherries are very popular throughout Spain and Europe, they really are the best I can assure you. They have the perfect balance between sweet and sour, so good it is difficult to stop eating them once you've started...

So I think they perfectly match with the salmon along with the crunchiness of the cucumber and the freshness of the mint and the lime zest. The spicy touch is totally an option but I honestly recommend adding at least a bit to add an original twist. 


Regarding the salmon, it is essential to use a good fresh one, however is very important to follow the correct freezing procedure to avoid the anisakis bacteria that raw fish may have. At least 48 hours in the freezer should be ok, however I've read that in order to be completely sure the best way is to leave it there for a week. So if you think about preparing a fish tartar you will need some planning ahead to freeze it and defrost afterwards. 

You can serve the tartar in many ways, I find cute and convenient using little glasses. It is ideal as an individual appetizer if you are receiving guests, and you can prepare it in advance and keep it in the fridge until you serve it.

So let's start with the recipe!

* Little tips and hacks*

Some spring onions and scallions taste too strong or leave a bad taste in the mouth. To avoid that you can chop them and leave soaking in cold water with a lot of salt for at least 30 minutes. Then drain and rinse with cold water and you'll have a softer flavour with no bad after taste.
