Salmon tartare

    A beautifully simple preparation of raw fish that is a celebration of freshness. The thing I love about this dish is the magic worked by the lemon juice. As well as imparting sharp fresh flavour, the acid in the lemon juice affects the protein in the fish, causing a "cooked" texture on the surface of the meat whilst leaving the centre rare and soft.

    1. Take the salmon, remove the skin and cut out the grey coloured blood line so you have only the shiny pink flesh. Cut into approximately 15mm dice and place in a bowl.
    2. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Taste and add more seasoning if need be. There are no exact quantities for a recipe like this, just experiment and find out what works best for you. Leave to marinate for 5 minutes, then serve with buttered crusty brown toast.
