The easiest salmon tartare recipe, easy and delicious. You just have to be patient to wait for the chill process.

This dish comes handy as a refreshing appetizer or as an elegant main, it requires good quality sushi grade salmon* and some great olive oil.

When it comes to the sauce, it really is a matter of preference, I like it saucy, citrusy and light. Adjust as needed*

It can be served with bread, chips, or just by itself.


*Note 1: you can also use any salmon but previously frozen for 6days at -23C.

*Note 2: I like it saucy, if you don’t, just use 1/2 the oil and lemon quantities
