ELABORATION

  1. For the Tataki: Cut the salmon into small rectangles. Batter directly with the seed mixture. Sear in a non-stick pan on all sides leaving the centre raw or pink. 
  2. For the vinaigrette: Mash the cooked and peeled beets with the oil, vinegar, salt and pepper to a vinaigrette texture. 
  3. For the Forvm Merlot Vinegar Pearls: Heat to boiling and stir in the agar-agar. 
  4. With the help of a syringe make drops and let them fall into a container with oil previously cooled from the refrigerator. 
  5. Leave a few minutes in the oil so that the pearls get solid. 
  6. For the avocado puree: Peel the avocados and take out the stone. Chop the onion, tomato, bell pepper and chives finely. With the help of a fork, mash the avocado with a squeeze of half a lemon and the olive oil. Mix the rest of the chopped ingredients. 

Presentation

Place an avocado base on a plate. Place the previously cut smoked salmon tataki on top. Add the beet vinaigrette on top. Top with the mixture of sprouts, flowers and some mustard ice cream balls.
