* Salmon Tartare with Truffles, Capers and Chevre

Posted on September 6th, 2008 by Linda. Filed under Appetizer, Course, Cuisine, Dairy, Fish, Fusion, Ingredients, Japanese.

An alternative to tuna tartare – salmon tartare.  The robust truffle complements the salmon well.  The goat cheese adds a tang to break up the richness of the tartare, and the daikon sprouts complements the flavor.  Capers and salmon are a classic combination.  This recipe is adapted from Tetsuya’s “Recipes from Australia’s Most Acclaimed Chef.”

Chef’s tip: Make sure you get sashimi grade salmon. Regular salmon, even if it’s fresh out of the sea, needs to be frozen to kill the natural micro-organism that resides in salmon.

6 oz of sashimi-grade salmon

1 teaspoon capers in salt, rinsed, chopped
1 teaspoon white truffle paste
1 Tablespoon white truffle oil
1 Tablespoon parsley or chervil, chopped finely
1 tablespoon chives, chopped finely
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
A pinch of black pepper

2 Tablespoons crumbled goat cheese
1 teaspoon meyer lemon zest

1 cup daikon sprouts
1 Tablespoon truffle oil

To make the Sashimi Tartare:
1.  Chop salmon into small cubes
2.  Mix salmon with capers, truffle paste, truffle oil, parsley, chives, salt and pepper
3.  In a separate bowl, mix the goat cheese with lemon zest
To Assemble:
4.  Using a tall cake ring, put some chevre in the middle
5.  Top with the salmon mixture
6.  In a separate bowl, toss the sprouts with the truffle oil
7.  Place sprouts around the tian.
8.  Serve with some wasabi crackers.

Serves: 4
