A light and refreshing recipe that grows in popularity
Made with vegetables, fish, seafood or meat, tartare is one of the most popular recipes in restaurants. A dish that was already reflected in Marco Polo’s travel book, where it was reported that the nobility consumed meat fillets cut into small pieces with a garlic and spice sauce.
Some stories tell that the Tartars had the habit of curing the meat and placing it under a saddle to soft it. Some other stories inform that, in French Polynesia was common to present this dish in the late XX Century and it became much more popular in the fifties. It is in this decade, when his name emerges, was created the tartare sauce that the French chef Auguste Escoffier added to the steak tartare.
Thanks to the tarts and other elaborations such as tatakis, pokes, sashimi, nigiris and sushis, the fish have taken a special role at the table.

‘Harmonies in Flavors and Fragrances’ by Juan Muñoz Ramos.
Harmony of colors and harmony in flavors and pink fragrances, with green and vivid sparkles, which bring color and flavor to a summery and very tasty dish such as a salmon tartare with avocado, seaweed and the yellow note offered by the egg yolk as sauce, closes for an almost total and edonist pleasure.
At its side, two complements of the same level, who follow it on a trip to the bottom of pleasure. Nothing better than a fine and delicate water whose intake cleanses our palate and brings freshness. It is S.Pellegrino. Next to it, a great Cava. Elegant, rosé and Gran Reserva, it is the Milesimé Rosado of Juvé & Camps it is a trilogy that produces a show of aromas, flavors and sensations that slightly brush the magic of taste and pleasure.
Water, salmon and pink cava, we just need to be by the sea with the gentle breeze that rubs our skin to reach a total ecstasy, mediterranean and gastronomic.
Note: for the Cava service you can use a flute glass and a glass of white or red wine. Long aging wines deserves to breathe. Between 8-10ºC. S.Pellegrino must be served in a glass at 10ºC. In this way it offers all its flavor.
- The avocado has to be ripe and cutted in thin slices. Otherwise, it will not have flexibility and, when you remove the cooking ring, it will open and it becomes less aesthetic.
- We can finish the tartare with a raw egg yolk, as a sauce, or an egg cooked at low temperature to give force to the dish.
- This tartare should not wait or the avocado will begin to oxidize and lose all its splendor. Serve immediately and very fresh.
- Sprinkle it with some salt flakes and with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil to add an extra flavor point.
