The idea of throwing a dinner party can be stressful and intimidating, but there are so many dishes you can prepare that require minimal prep work and no time in the oven.
In addition to party classics like deviled eggs and guacamole, a fun appetizer to serve in the warmer months is salmon tartare. This chilled dish is a delicious way to beat the heat, and, thanks to this recipe, it only takes five minutes to make!
On this week’s episode of Hostess Next Door, chef Vanessa Cantave demonstrates how to prepare fresh salmon tartare in no time at all. With just a few sauces and garnishes, Vanessa transforms salmon into a restaurant-worthy appetizer that’s as healthy as it is mouthwatering.
For a perfect salmon tartare, make sure you buy your fish on the day you plan to make your tartare. Fresh fish is the main component of this dish, and it really makes all the difference.
If you want to make this dish for yourself, you can also prepare it as a refreshingly light lunch to eat on the porch with a glass of iced tea. Nothing says summer quite like fresh fish and ripe avocado!
