Smoked Salmon Tartar
This recipe is so quick and easy to make and will even appeal to those new to raw foods. The key to this dish is to buy very high quality smoked salmon.
4 Ounce Package Sliced Smoked Salmon 1 Tablespoon Shallot, Finely Chopped
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil 1 Tablespoon Fresh Dill 1 Lemon, Thinly Sliced
Chop the smoked salmon into small rough dice. Combine in a bowl with the olive oil, shallots and chopped fresh dill and mix until combined. To serve, use a 1 cup measuring cup (preferably round) as a mold, and pack with the tartar. Turn out onto plate and garnish with a small sprig of dill, the thinly sliced lemon. You can serve with some wasabi cream sauce if desired. To make your own just mix mayonnaise with some prepared wasabi (just check ingredients).
Wild Caught Fish – Fish is a very nutritious food, but just like beef, a distinction must be made. Farm raised fish are fed grains instead of their natural diet of krill and shrimp, thus denaturing their natural composition. For example, wild caught salmon is high in the antioxidant astaxanthin, which is depleted once farm raised. Farm raised salmon has also been shown to contain 16 times more PCB’s than wild salmon. Wild caught fish is a great source of omega-3s, calcium, selenium, and protein. Fish helps regulate blood sugar, improve heart function, helps the brain and mood, prevents disease, and boosts metabolism. To avoid fish high in mercury contamination, choose smaller fish, from the coldest waters, and furthest away from the Atlantic Ocean.
