You will need:
-A huge piece of fresh salmon (depending on how much you're making)
-Two tablespoons of olive oil
-Fresh mint leaves (at first I was skeptical about using mint but it turned out YUMMY!)
-About a tablespoon of chopped capers
-A small shallot, chopped. Or if you want, about two tablespoons of chopped green onion.
-Melba crackers (to serve with the tartare)
-Chop the salmon in mini mini cubes. This can take awhile :( But the trick I can give you is to put the salmon in the freezer for about half an hour so that it gets harder, which will make it way easier to cut.
-Add the olive oil, lime juice. Mix well.
-Add all of the other ingredients. Taste. Add whatever it is that you like (from the ingredients) until you like the taste. I added olive oil, more mint and more pepper!
-Refrigerate! Serve! ENJOY!
That's it! I swear! So easy to make, and delicious! Restaurant food at home :D
P.S. I have a little secret...I bought a super small piece of salmon and tried making a mini portion of the tartar the day before the guests would come. I was a bit scared since it was the first time I was making it and I wanted to make sure I got the recipe right! As I "pre-made" the tartar, I understood the importance of LIME JUICE!! It adds a lot to the taste and makes the salmon taste even more fresh....:)
