I’m a day late, but here is my French Fridays with Dorie recipe for the week. I was visiting my parents in Seattle last week, so they were the lucky recipients of this delicious dish. It was fun to take my photos with new props and a different location!
Salmon Tartare is a lovely dish made from raw salmon seasoned with lime, scallions, chives, mint, salt, pepper, and a splash of Tabasco. It is served on a bed of perfectly ripe avocado with similar seasonings, and topped with halved grape tomatoes. To add to the beautiful colors and presentation, Dorie has us layer the ingredients in a ring or ramekin (I used ramekins) for a structured look.
This was a huge hit! My Dad said it was “Goooooood”! We enjoyed it with white wine on a beautiful, sunny afternoon. I loved the combination of flavors and textures. Having fresh ingredients is a must.
A note on portion sizes: Dorie mentions that the portions are generous, so I cut the recipe in half. Even then, the portions for three of us were generous for a starter.
I hope you are all having a nice weekend!
