Corn Salmon Tartare

June 22, 2013

Author Notes: An ultimate summer tartare with southern flavors. The tribute to those months when the wild salmon is at its best, and the corn cannot be sweeter or crunchier. And needless to say, you will need the freshest salmon and the freshest corn – they are the key to this dish. QueenSashy

In This Recipe


  1. Place the salmon into the freezer briefly, about 20-30 minutes, to make it easier to dice. With a sharp knife, slice the salmon lengthwise into 1/8" wide sheets. Cut each sheet into 1/8" long strips. Cut the strips crosswise into 1/8" dice.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the lime juice, lime zest, salt and pepper. Add the oil and whisk until creamy.
  3. Place the salmon in a bowl. Add the corn, scallion, jalapeno, red pepper flakes, chipotle powder and vinaigrette, and toss to combine.
