By Anneli Faiers, September 6, 2012, In Starters
~ 15 minutes
- 1 small salmon fillet
1 ripe avocado
1 handful of coriander, chopped
1/4 of a red onion, finely chopped
1/2 a small tomato, skinned, de-seeded & finely chopped
1/2 - 1 red chilli, finely chopped
juice of 1 lime
- First poach your salmon by placing in a pan and covering with boiling water and simmering for 7-10 minutes. Remove from the pan and leave to cool.
- Cut your avocado in half, remove the stone and skin and cut into small dice. Place in a bowl with the finely chopped chilli, onion and tomato. Season.
- When the salmon is cool, remove the skin and flake into the avocado, reserving 8 large flakes for the garnish. Add the coriander and lime juice to the mixture and stir very gently, trying not to break up the salmon too much.
- Spoon some of the mixture into each of your little dishes and top each with a final flake of the salmon. Season very gently with a little black pepper and serve.
