Beautiful Salmon Tartare Recipe


  • Wild Caught Salmon (chopped)
  • Spring Onion or Green Onion (chopped)
  • Horseradish (grated)
  • Dash of Heavy Cream
  • Squeeze of Lime Juice
  • Poached Gull's Egg
  • Caviar
  • Pureed Lemon
  • Optional:  Gold Leaf

This is another great way to present a salmon tartare - on top of crushed ice in a pretty cocktail glass.

I have no idea on how to make pureed lemon, but lemon flavored homemade mayonnaise could be another option.

Also, a quail's egg might be a better option for most people.

Health Benefits of Wild Caught Salmon

  • High Quality Protein
  • High in Omega-3 Fatty Acids
  • High in Vitamin D
  • High in Selenium
  • Good Source of Vitamin A
  • Good Source of Vitamins B12, B6, and B3
  • A Good Source of Zinc, Phosphorus, Calcium, Iron, and Magnesium
  • Vitamin C & E found in Some Salmon

A 4 oz serving of wild salmon can give you your recommended daily allowance of Vitamin D (very few foods can claim this).

Along with a healthy dose of omega-3 fatty acids and tryptophan which is an amino acid related to serotonin production in your brain.

Serotonin is a chemical in your brain that helps to maintain that "Happy Feeling".

This serving size will get you close to your daily recommended dosage of the mineral selenium and vitamin B12.

Most places will carry some type of salmon to purchase, but sadly it's usually farmed salmon.

Farmed salmon is quite a step down and will not have quite the same taste or health benefits of wild caught salmon.

You can usually tell by the color if it is wild or farmed salmon.  Wild caught salmon usually has a more vibrant orange color than farmed salmon.

Just keep searching and you will eventually find the good stuff!
