Salmon Avocado Tartare


I’m BAAAAAAAACK! It’s been a rough 2 weeks of exams, but I am finally back from the depths of Study Hell. And I can finally spend more time cooking!!

During exams, I usually make some quick ‘gourmet’ fixes, and I’m sharing with you a personal favourite of mine. It is quick, but amazingly good, and relatively healthy, and serves as a wonderful summer side/app. I “created” it one day (not sure if “creating” gives me too much credit for such a simple recipe) when I bought too much sushi-grade salmon for my lunch, so I decided to transform the fish to something fun and equally delicious for my dinner. This recipe is simply a guideline, so taste-testing is highly recommended. An ideal dish should have a nice blend of citrus-lime, red onions, spice and a hint of sweetness. DO NOT make this dish with over-ripe guacamole (unless you are ready to have salmon guacamole. Tuna is also a good alternative in place of salmon.

Here you go, another Nommy Noms recipe.

  • Salmon (Sushi grade, chopped) ————————————— ~500 grams
  • Avocado (Medium, chopped) ——————————————-    1
  • Red Onions (minced) —————————————————-    1/4 Cup
  • Green Pepper Tabasco Sauce —————————————-     a few generous dashes
  • Lime juice ——————————————————————     half of 1 lime
  • Lime rind  ——————————————————————-    half of 1 lime
  • Light soy sauce ———————————————————–     2 Tbsp
  • Sugar ————————————————————————    1 Tsp
  • Masago (optional) ———————————————————    1-2 Tbsp (and for garnish)
  • Chopped green onions (optional) ————————————–    for garnish

The Fun Part:

  1. Chop up all the need-to-be-chopped ingredients, and mix em all up! (See? Super quick!)     ImageImage 
  2. For pretty presentation, spoon the tartare into a tall cookie mold and shape. Enjoy it alone, or serve with nachos, or as a side-dish to my Fish Tacos! Enjoy!
