I love the freshness of salmon prepared this way.
We have this as one of our tapas plates, something that just needs mixed at the last minute is very handy when you have lots of things happening on the stove!
You can prepare the onion ahead of time and have the salmon chopped along with the herbs, ready to be combined at the last minute.
Obviously, your salmon needs to be as fresh as possible, I buy the sashimi grade salmon from the fishmonger, he very kindly prepares a fresh fish whenever he knows it is for sashimi, sushi or ceviche, I’m very lucky!
Serves 2 as a starter.
1/2 small red onion, very finely sliced
250mls warm water
150g salmon fillet, skin and brown meat removed
juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander
salt and pepper
Pour the warm water into a bowl and add the onion, allow to soak for ten minutes.
Drain the onion and squeeze dry on some kitchen towel.
Cut the salmon into small pieces, around 5mm.
When ready to serve, stir the salmon, lime juice, coriander, salt and pepper together.
Line the serving dish with the onion and top with the salmon.
