Carpaccio of salmon - 2 ways

Method

  • Mix together the fish sauce, rice wine vinegar, vegie oil, juice of 2 limes, the sugar and half of the chilli and garlic mixture. Taste for seasoning.
  • In another bowl, toss the wonga bok, red onion, carrot and peanuts and mint with dressing to taste and set aside.
  • Lay 3-4 salmon slices in the round on individual plates (or 12-16 slices on one large plate), spoon a little dressing over and mound the salad in the centre.
  • Serve with lemon wedges on the side.
  • To make the other variation, divide the remaining chilli and garlic mixture between individual plates (or place it all on one large plate). Add a little oil and soy and then mix together with a spoon. Lay the remaining salmon on top, gently turn to coat well with the oil mix and serve with toasted or grilled bread on the side.
  • nb. Gently batten out the sliced salmon under folded-over clngwrap, if need be.
