SERRANO CAPER SALMON CRUDO

How To Prepare Serrano Caper Salmon Crudo

🌶 First, chop the shallot, Serranos and capers together. Then, using the back of your knife form a paste like I do in the video.

🥣 Secondly, add that to a bowl with the chives, dill, dijon, Tamari, caper juice, lemon juice and lemon zest and drizzle the olive oil as you mix.

🍣 Slice your sushi grade salmon. Then, cut the cucumber to be the same size as the salmon, get some thinly sliced ribbons.

🥒 Arrange the cucumber and salmon on a plate. Then, drizzle the sauce on top.

🌿 Lastly, add the Japanese mayo on top to balance the acidity, micro arugula and touch of olive oil to taste.

Substitutions and Variations

  1. You can use any fish of your choice, but I highly recommend it with yellowtail or ahi.
  2. You can use any pepper of your choice, such as jalapeño instead of Serrano.
  3. You can use regular mayonnaise instead of Japanese mayonnaise.
