This year we took part in the Food Network & Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by Capital One (SOBEWFF®). The festival benefits the Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management at Florida International University, and as a local company we were excited to support a local cause to empower the future of our industry.
We were thrilled that our salmon was selected by some of the premier chefs at the festival and that they created their own unique recipes using our award-winning product.
Among them, Chef Mikel Goikolea showcased his Salmon Marinado utilizing Oshēn Salmon. We can genuinely say this refreshing tartar is perfect for summer and a delectable dish for any event.
As a part of our SOBEWFF Recap series we are showcasing photography from the event along with Chef Goikolea's recipe for you to make at home.
We hope you will enjoy this recipe, and if you are in Miami, feel free to visit LEKU and Chef Goikolea to indulge in his curations.
Salmon Marinado with Caviar by Chef Mikel Goikolea
Salmon Marinado Preparation Directions
Slice the salmon into this strips and then dice into small cubes. We prefer small cubes for the tartare. Set aside.
In a bowl, combine the vinaigrette ingredients and whisk together until blended into a nice liquid.
Mix the diced salmon with scallions, purple onions, and pickled guindilla pepper. Once combined, carefully toss the salmon mixture with the vinaigrette.
> Chef Goikolea's pro tip: do this 15 minutes before serving for maximum flavor.
Divide the mixture into four equal parts. Serve each portion in a small bowl.
If desired, add 1/3-1/2 oz of Caviar to each serving (to your taste) and sprinkle ground Espelette pepper.
