Step by step recipe
- 1: The day before, cut 600 g fish fillet into small pieces. Ideally use 3 different kinds of fish: salmon, cod, whiting, tuna, etc.
- 2: You should make the pieces quite small about 1 or 2 cm) and fairly thin.
- 3: Squeeze the 5 limes, and put the juice in a bowl through a very fine strainer to remove all the pulp.
- 4: Put all the fish in the salted lime juice, mix well.
Cover with plastic film and refrigerate overnight.
- 5: The next day, you will see that the fish has been cured by the lime juice, as it will have become opaque (effectively "cooked").
- 6: Drain the fish in a strainer. You can discard the lime juice now.
- 7: Wash, peel and cut 1 carrot in small pieces.
- 8: Cut 1 bunch chives very fine.
- 9: Cut 1 shallot into very small pieces.
- 10: Add carrot, chives and shallot to the fish, mix well.
- 11: Finally add a little olive oil, perhaps chive flavoured.
Add pepper, then check seasoning.
- 12: Serve like this, as a salad, or on toast. If you're having a barbecue, serve as a starter, and make toast directly on the barbecue with slices of lightly buttered bread. Yummmm...
If you don't have limes, you can use lemons, but it will not be as good.
