Cod Tartare With Strawberry Salsa

Cod Tartare with strawberry salsa

Carpentras is famous for its strawberries. They usually titivate our taste buds from mid-April to the summer. This year, the Spring has been colder with less sunshine and more wind, meaning the strawberries are not as sweet as usual, but this does not bother Philippe, the strawberry wizard from Saint Didier. He delights us with three varieties: Cléry, Daisy and Dream. They are so good that we hardly need to do anything to them, they are perfect for salads, sorbets and soups! Using strawberries with raw fish is very unusual, but I love making recipes from elsewhere with local ingredients... Enjoy! (Isa Lichtenthurm, Métafort)

Ingredients for 2 people

100g cod fillet per person – strawberries – olive oil –  fresh ginger - fresh coriander – garlic – Espelette pepper – organic roasted sesame seed oil – Maldon sea salt flakes – grilled pumpkin seeds – microgreens (e.g. alfalfa sprouts) – toast - kitchen salt


Cod: slice the fillets into small pieces, add a little olive oil and salt, then chill in the refrigerator. Strawberries: cut into small dice and add the finely diced ginger, some finely chopped coriander stalks, two halved cloves of garlic and a little Espelette pepper, then chill in the refrigerator.

Just before serving, add a little organic roasted sesame seed oil, some coriander leaves, some Maldon sea salt flakes (there are other brands but Maldon is my favourite!), some grilled pumpkin seeds and a few microgreens.
Rub olive oil and salt onto the toast and grill for about 8 minutes or until crisp before adding to each plate and serving.

Serve with

A white wine, such as the Viognier “Domaine de la Massane” from Bédoin would be ideal.

Fig Tarte Tatin with Smoked Wild Boar Ham

A variant of the classic and ever-popular tarte tatin, Catherine serves this as a starter rather than a dessert because it is a savoury-sweet tart. We must point out that she has a ready supply of wild boar at home and that figs are grown in Alsace. An excellent autumn recipe (Catherine and Eric Marcal, La Forestière, Le Hohwald).
