How to make Tartare di trota salmonata alle mele – Tartare of salmon trout with apples

Set aside some tarragon leaves for the final decoration and coarsely chop the others. Combine them with the crème fraîche, cream, white wine vinegar, grated lemon rind, anchovies, and capers. Puree in a blender until creamy. Adjust salt and pepper.

Cut the potatoes into cubes, fry them in oil until golden brown, place them on kitchen paper to remove excess grease, and adjust salt and pepper.

Remove any skin from the salmon trout fillet. Core the apple, clean the chili and peel the shallot, then chop finely. Mix the fish, apple, shallot, and chili and season with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Season to taste with soy sauce.

Spread the tarragon cream in the center of the plate, place the salmon trout tartare on top, garnish with the diced potatoes and remaining tarragon leaves.
