SIMPLE SALMON TARTAR SASHA STYLE

When it comes to food, I love simplicity. Unless I'm eating something that absolutely requires a whole bunch of spices and flavours to make it successful, I prefer simple ingredients.
This is by far the simplest and most loved salmon tartar recipe I have ever made. Every time I make it I get a bunch of compliments and everyone loves it. One of my personal preferences is to never use mayonnaise (ew) or lemon juice to cure the salmon. Avoiding these two ingredients will ensure your salmon recipe remains as fresh and as simple as possible. Yum!

Ingredients

10 ounces of fresh wild caught salmon (I recommend Costco)
2 medium size shallots
15-20 chives, chopped
High quality olive oil (preferably Greek)
1 tsp Sesame oil
Chili Flakes
Salt / Pepper

Preparation

Start out by dicing the salmon and the shallots into small cubes and adding both ingredients into a medium size bowl. Makes sure to use a sharp knife for clean cuts.

Chop the chives into small pieces with a knife or scissors and add to the bowl. Add 1-2 tablespoons of Greek olive oil, the sesame oil and the chili flakes. Make sure not to add too much sesame oil because it's quite potent and will take over the dish if you add too much of it.

When it comes to chili, I put that stuff on everything. I love heat. If you don't like spice you can either completely omit adding the chili flakes or you can add a little less to the recipe. Finally, add some salt and pepper and mix all of the ingredients together. Taste for salt and add some more if necessary (don't be afraid to add a lot of salt - you'll notice that you'll need at least a teaspoon of it).

Serve with thinly sliced toasted baguette, crackers or sliced cucumbers.
