Who else loves raw fish and vegetables? I know I do! Of course, otherwise I wouldn’t be making this dish. But to be honest, raw fish and seafood is one if the best things I know. That is if it’s of good quality, fresh and properly prepared. A raw fish and seafood plate is fresh, delicate, yet flavorful with a lovely texture if you get it right. It does not at all feel slimy, disgusting or weird as many people might think. Quite the opposite. But when making a raw fish or seafood plate the key is to use really fresh and high quality ingredients. The raw fish/seafood will be the main ingredient in your dish, hence it needs to be fresh of good quality. The second most important thing is that it has to be thinly sliced so it feels fresh, delicate and light. You don’t want to get a big or too thick piece of raw fish in your mouth. It will feel quite like too much and it will grow in your mouth. And then you won’t like the dish for sure. So three main rules; high quality ingredients, fresh and not too thick slices. This dish is made with raw sashimi salmon and fresh scallops. Both of them are tender, light and delicate in taste. So I chose to pair them with raw and crunchy vegetables that add some texture and taste to the dish. You have the picante radish, earthy and crunchy asparagus and then the fennel with a subtile taste of liquorish. The dish is then topped with caviar/fish roe, fresh lemon juice, cilantro and furikake seasoning/sesame seeds. This dish is perfect to serve either as a starter, side dish, light lunch or why not make a bigger version and have it as a main course. It is both gluten, grain, oil free and low carb.
A few tips:
