RECIPE: Salmon Tartare with Dill Cream and Persian Cucumber Pickle

Posted on June 27, 2012 by a

One of the delights of being a member of a CSA is opening the weekly “basket” to find wonderful ingredients you had not expected…all as your mind races to figure out what to do with them. It is simultaneously a moment out of Food Network’s Chopped….and precisely its wonderful opposite. Rarely does a CSA basket contain an ingredient expressly designed to stump you.

In addition to being members of J.R. Organics vegetable CSA we are also members of Poppa’s Fresh Fish Company’s “Fishscription” CSA. This past Sunday, Poppa’s impresario, Mark Lane, handed us a chunk of gorgeous salmon, which he said was so fresh it wanted to be Salmon Tartare when it grew up. Who were we to argue? The only question was what to pair with the salmon. We opted for two classic combinations: salmon with dill and salmon with cucumber

Salmon Tartare with Dill Cream and Persian Cucumber Pickle


Serves 4 – 6


For the Persian Cucumber Pickle

  • 1 Persian Cucumber (or about half an English Cucumber
  • Kosher Salt
  • 2 tablespoons Aleppo (or Cayenne) Pepper
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white vinegar

For the Dill Cream

  • 1 shallot, minced
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 bunch fresh dill, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

For the Salmon Tartare

  • 1 pound fillet of extremely fresh Salmon
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chives, minced
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground white pepper

For the Garnish

  • 10-15 leaves of Arugula
  • Balsamic Vinegar Glaze
  1. Prepare the Persian Cucumber Pickle. Cut the Persian Cucumber into thin, one inch batons. Place the cucumber batons in a non-reactive bowl, liberally sprinkle with salt and mix to make sure that the salt covers all surfaces of the cucumber. After 2 to 3 minutes, the cucumbers will give up a lot of water, which should be thoroughly drained. Put the remaining ingredients in the bowl and combine thoroughly. After about an hour the pickles should be ready. This will make more pickles than necessary for this dish but they will keep in the refrigerator for about a week. If you intend to keep them any longer they must be properly canned.
  2. Make the Dill Cream. Place all the ingredients for the Dill Cream in a small bowl. Whisk to thoroughly combine. Set aside the sauce until ready to use.
  3. Make the Salmon Tartare. Combine all of the Salmon Tartare ingredients in a bowl and, using your hands, gently mix to thoroughly combine. Refrigerate the Tartare for half an hour before using.
  4. Assemble the Dish. Arrange the leaves of Arugula attractively on a plate. Spoon the Salmon Tartare into a ring mold on top of the Arugula. Using a wine glass, spoon or spatula compress the tartare just enough to make sure it stays in place. Drizzle the Balsamic Vinegar Glaze over the Salmon Tartare and around the plate. Spoon some of the Dill Cream on top of each tartare and top each with four or five Persian Cucumber batons.
