Salmon Tartare on Wonton Crisps

Came home from supermarket today, I got a really nice piece of Salmon fillet to make….something.… well, I have not decided yet what to make, supposedly, for dinner.  And when I looked at it and tried to think about the menu…hmmm…Bake? Boiled? Soup? (yes, I talk about Salmon soup, never had it?), the picture of Salmon sashimi was just floating in front of me and I just couldn’t help it and started to cut a little piece of raw salmon and dipped in the hot sauce for a sample.    YES!…Salmon Tartare!  

As you already know that Salmon is rich in Omega-3, along with the niacin and vitamin 12, is extremely beneficial for cardiovascular health.  The omega-3 in salmon also helps in reducing depression, the principal causes that boost the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines and thus, keeps a person in good mood.   That why I love Salmon and need to eat it more often.  However, be caution when eating raw fish. 

I guarantee that you will love this dish.   It’s spicy with a little piece of Thai bird chili on top; it’s so tasty with the addition of tobacco and sesame seeds; and it’s so simple to make.   Really!   I fried up wonton skins to go with it and it was perfect!  But don’t’ worry.  If you do not have wonton skin, you can have the tartare with your favorite chips or just eat the tartare plain (with a nice glass of chilled Pinot Grigio, of course).   I really hope you try this.  It’s deli-ci-ous!    ^o^

What you need:

7 oz. Salmon, finely diced
¼ cup Persian cucumber, thinly diced
¼ cup Red bell pepper, thinly diced
2 tbsp white part of green onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp fresh ginger, finely grated
1 tbsp fresh squeeze lime juice + zest
1 tbsp Rice vinegar
1 tbsp Tabasco
1 tbsp EV olive oil
1 tbsp toasted sesame seed
Pinch of Salt
4 small green Thai bird’s eye chilies thinly sliced – or you can use green Jalapeno  
4 squares wonton wrapper – cut into quarters so they are equal to 16 small squares, then quick deep fry them
Oil to fry wonton

- Add all the ingredients in the mixing bowl and gently fold them to combine the flavor
- Spoon the salmon tartare on the fried wonton, top with thinly sliced Thai chili and toasted sesame seed and serve immediately
