Salmon Tartare

With everyone keenly penning their New Year resolutions, it’s inevitable that healthy eating is right up there in the top five. As ‘eating more fish’ always seems to feature, here’s a slightly less obvious recipe for packing in the omega-3 fatty acids.

Salmon Fillet

There are a couple of variations on this dish; one is to take the natural, raw sashimi-style approach, and the other, akin to ceviche,  is to include citrus juice to ‘cook’ the fish as per below.


(serves 2)

  • 400g Salmon, skinned and boned, diced into 1cm cubes
  • 2 tsp Shallot, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp Parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp Capers, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp Gherkin, finely chopped
  • Sprig of Dill
  • Dash of Tobasco
  • Dash of Worcestershire Sauce
  • Juice of 1 Lemon


Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl and season with salt and pepper.

Leave it to stand for 10 minutes.

Garnish with Dill fronds and serve with triangles of granary toast.
