      What is the best season to make this recipe?

      This mouthwatering Salmon Carpaccio is a versatile dish that can be enjoyed year-round.

      It is filled with fresh and vibrant ingredients. So yummy!

      What are the health benefits of this dish?

      I love salmon! It is known for its rich omega-3 fatty acids and provides numerous health benefits, including improved heart health.

      Additionally, tomatoes are rich in antioxidants, while capers offer a burst of flavor along with essential vitamins and minerals.

      This Salmon Carpaccio recipe is combined with olive oil, giving a lot of nutrients to the dish overall.

      Where can I buy the required ingredients?

      For the freshest ingredients, consider visiting your local farmer’s market or seafood market.

      Alternatively, reputable grocery stores often have high-quality salmon fillets, cherry tomatoes, capers, and other ingredients.

      Ensure that the salmon is fresh and sustainably sourced for the most delicious results.

      Can I substitute any of the ingredients?

      Sure! If cherry tomatoes are not available, you can use grape tomatoes or diced Roma tomatoes.

      Likewise, shallots can be substituted with red onions for a slightly different flavor profile.

      Chives can be substituted with spring onions.

      Can I make this dish part of a menu?


      Salmon Carpaccio pairs beautifully with a variety of dishes, making it a versatile addition to any menu. Serve it as an elegant appetizer alongside crusty bread.

      Pair it with other Mediterranean-inspired main dishes such as Poached Salmon in White Wine or Pecan Criusted Salmon.

      For a dessert, go with my Apple Cinanamon CakeKiwi Pavlova, or Raspberry Pavlova.

      This Mediterranean Salmon Carpaccio is suitable for both casual parties and formal dinners.

      Which drinks pair well with this dish?

      I recommend serving Salmon Carpaccio with crisp white wines such as Sauvignon Blanc, Encruzado, or Chardonnay.

      The acidity of these wines complements the dish’s citrusy flavor.

      Also, you can serve light and refreshing sparkling water infused with lemon or lime as a non-alcoholic option.

      How long can I store the leftovers?

      While Salmon Carpaccio is best enjoyed fresh, leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.

      However, keep in mind that the texture and flavor may slightly diminish.

      I recommend consuming leftovers promptly and avoiding any storage. 😉

      Recipe tips & tricks:

      • Ensure that the salmon fillet is thinly sliced for an authentic carpaccio texture.
      • Use a sharp knife to thinly chop the shallots, and chives to ensure uniformity in flavor distribution.
      • Drizzle the olive oil and lemon juice over the salmon just before serving to prevent the ingredients from becoming soggy.
      • Season the dish with salt and pepper to taste, adjusting the seasoning according to your preference.
