Salmon Tartare with Avocado and Lime

It's not only tuna tartar that works well with a zesty touch to it, our sashimi-grade salmon is perfect to entertain guest with a light and healthy snack or starter. Feel free to customise the recipe to suit your preferences – you can serve the avocado within the salmon tartare or as a garnish (as picture here), add diced cucumber, jalapeño for some extra spice, or even a splash of soy sauce for an Asian-inspired twist. However you choose to enjoy it, this dish is sure to be a hit!



  • 300g fresh sashimi-grade salmon fillet, skin removed, finely diced
  • 1 ripe avocado, diced
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
  • 1 tablespoon capers, drained and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Optional: a pinch of red pepper flakes for some heat
  • For serving: crackers, crostini, or cucumber slices




Salmon Tartare with Avocado and Lime


  1. Using a sharp knife, finely dice the salmon into small cubes. Place the diced salmon in a large mixing bowl.

  2. Cut the avocado in half, remove the pit, and carefully scoop out the flesh. Dice the avocado into small pieces similar in size to the salmon cubes.

  3. Add the diced avocado, chopped red onion, capers, and chopped cilantro to the bowl with the salmon.

  4. Zest the lime directly into the bowl, then cut it in half and squeeze the juice over the salmon mixture. Drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes, if using.

  5. Using a spoon or spatula, gently mix all the ingredients together until well combined. Be careful not to mash the avocado too much; you want to maintain some texture.

  6. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the salmon tartare for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavours to meld together.

  7. When ready to serve, give the salmon tartare a final stir. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Spoon the tartare onto crackers, crostini, or cucumber slices for a refreshing appetizer or light lunch.

  8. If desired, garnish with additional coriander leaves, capers or lime wedges before serving.

  9. Enjoy
