Alternative Appetizers: Avocado Salmon / Tuna Tartare

Hello guys! here is a new appetizer recipe you guys going to love! The main ingredients for this recipe are:  avocado, tuna fish or Salmon. I was not quite lucky with my avocado when I made this appetizer, they were kinda hard and a bit sour so make sure you buy good and soft avocados. And as you see in the photos below there is plenty of ways to decorate these little tartare / towers since there is japanese and french ways of making this recipe. I used taco chips and soy sauce with lemon slice and salad on the side to decorate mine. Be creative with making yours :-)  Enjoy trying it! 

1.Avocado Salmon Tartare

Prep time:5 minsServes:10 as a starter

5 avocados, mashed
2 tbsp lemon juice
3 spring onions, finely chopped,
2½ cups peeled and finely diced cucumber
salt and pepper to taste
600g gravlax, raw salmon or cold-smoked salmon, finely diced 
2 tbsp chopped dill
1¼ cups microgreens, to garnish

Put mashed avocado in a bowl and mix in lemon juice, spring onion and cucumber. Season to taste with salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, mix the salmon with the dill and season to taste with salt and pepper. 

Place ten 6-8cm ring moulds onto ten small serving plates (empty 7cm tin cans with both ends removed work well for these, but watch out for sharp edges). Divide half the avocado mixture between the moulds and press down gently with the back of a teaspoon. Divide the salmon mixture between the moulds on top of the avocado and smooth down evenly. Divide the remaining avocado on top of the salmon and smooth the tops. Chill until ready to serve.

When ready to serve, simply lift the moulds up to reveal the towers. Top with a garnish of microgreens and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Source
