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.

I would like to share with you one of my favourite recipes. YENN B&B tries to minimise its environmental footprint and to support fair trade. One of the ways we do this is by offering organic produce in our breakfasts and by using organic cleaning products. Added to this is the fact that Leuven is the world capital of bananas. I often tell this story to my guests who think I’m joking before realising that it’s true. (Nadine Gregoor)

“This recipe comes from Normandy in France, where we had a holiday home and where all the farmers make their own cider and calvados, which you can buy everywhere. There is also a very beautiful cider route that takes you through lovely old villages set in a delightful landscape” (Frances Jaarsma)
