For my birthday this weekend, my wonderful friend and sister-in-law Ann created this healthy Omega-3 and unsaturated fat packed salad. This raw salmon, celery and avocado salad is ooh so yummy! I loved it so much that I had to share her recipe immediately! She served it as a starter.
You have to like raw salmon but it would be delicious as well with cooked salmon. You could also try it with seared tuna.
For 6 servings you will need:
– 2 small avocado, ripe but still firm
– 3 celery branches
– 2 to 3oz of raw organic and very fresh salmon per person
– A few leaves of fresh cilantro and sesame seeds
– Pepper, salt, olive oil, fresh lemon juice and salt free soy sauce
How to prepare:
The day prior, marinate the salmon in salt free soy sauce – the salmon must be covered – with pepper and half the juice of a lemon. The next day, cut the salmon in 1/2 inch cubes (some people prefer the cubes bigger.
Cut the avocado and celery in very small cubes. The avocado cubes can be 1/3 to 1/2 inch wide but the celery must be very finely chopped. Mix with the cilantro leaves that will have been finely chopped. Put them in a bowl and add 1-2 tbsps. of olive oil and salt and pepper to your taste. Then add the salmon and mix very delicately.
Serve individually and add a few sesame seeds, toasted or not, on top. Bon appetit!
