Friday fave.......Salmon Tartare

 I surprised Mr. Moey with this last Saturday night as an appetizer.  It was followed by Veal Piccata as a main dish.  However I may have shot myself in the foot because according to him there's no need to ever go out to a restaurant again.  He said it was that good.  Note to self : hamburgers all of next week.  It's time to re-adjust his expectations.

Salmon Tartare

Ingredients

200 grams fresh sushi grade salmon (chopped)
1 tsp fresh dill
1 tsp finely chopped red onion
1 tsp finely chopped green onion
1 tsp finely chopped jalapeno pepper
zest of 1 small lime (finely chopped)
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
pinch of salt & pepper

Method

Mix all the ingredients together in a glass bowl.  Taste for seasoning and add salt & pepper if necessary.  Cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours,.  This recipe serves four, you can divide it into four plates and serve it on a bed of baby arugula garnished with a twist of lime.  I served mine with homemade toasted baguette rounds, seasoned with a little olive oil, sea salt and pepper.
