Salmon Tartare (serves 4)

1 tsp. grated ginger

2 tbsp. lime juice (half a lime)

2 tbsp. coconut aminos

2 tbsp. toasted sesame oil

1 lb. fresh salmon, cubed

Half a cucumber, seeds scooped out and diced

1 avocado, diced

Cilantro, chopped chives, and sesame seeds for garnish

Whisk together the grated ginger, lime juice, coconut aminos, and sesame oil. Using this mixture, marinate the cubed salmon for 15 minutes in the fridge. When ready, add diced cucumber and avocado in layers in a stainless-steel food tower form; top with salmon. Garnish with cilantro, sesame seeds, and chopped chives

Cucumber Salad

4 English cucumbers, cut lengthwise, seeds scooped out, and cut crosswise into crescents

1 sliced cucumber

1/4 cup rice vinegar

1/4 cup coconut aminos

2 tbsp. lime juice

1 tbsp. grated ginger

1 tsp. honey

1/4 cup toasted sesame oil

Garnish with toasted sesame seeds, picked red onions (or raw), and cilantro

Whisk together the rice vinegar, coconut aminos, lime juice, grated ginger, honey, and sesame oil. Toss with cucumber and add avocado. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds, picked red onions (or raw), and cilantro. To make the pickled onions, simmer ½ cup of apple cider vinegar, 2 tbsp. lemon juice, and 1 ½ tsp. sea salt for 3 minutes. Slice a red onion thinly (using a mandolin if you have one) and place in a mason jar. Fill jar with vinegar mixture and push down onions. They’ll be ready to eat in 20 minutes and will keep in the fridge for 3 weeks.
