Fish, seafood & shellfish

Marinated Salmon Cubes.

Do you like it raw? Then, go for this easy and flavourful appetizer. This is one of the main reasons why I love raw food… no need for cooking and most important… no need for cleaning a kitchen mess afterwards ;D. Now seriously, from my point of view, salmon tastes much much better this way than cooked! And that was the statement of the day ;D.
Do you have a party at home? Are you celebrating something? Then choose this kind of food. Trust me, no endless hours spent at the kitchen. Just marinate the salmon and the rest is a kids game.

The day before, go to your fishmonger and buy 500 or 400 grs of fresh salmon. Ask your fishmonger to prepare it for you, or if you are an Ikea kind of person: do it yourself: Freeze the whole piece.

The day after, defreeze at room temperature and take the bones and skin out. Cut in little cubes. Reserve. Prepare a marinate with: 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar and a pinch of salt.

Marinate the salmon for 1 hour in the fridge. Meanwhile, cut 2 medium potatoes in cubes too and boil in salty water. When done, let them cool down.
Get a can of salmon roe and another of lumpfish and present the dish over some Japanese sticks.
Tuna is also a good idea.

I love raw fish as I love sushi and sashimi. Your way of preparing makes me drooling, however, I have to stay away from raw food for time being.

I agree, Nuria, the taste of salmon raw, is definitely superior to the cooked stuff!

I don’t know if I would be brave enough to try it raw, but it sure looks pretty.

This is delicious, but unfortunately way to expensive for every day eating, I like serving it with black caviar and champagne.
