‘Sashimi’, sliced raw Fish, are still hard to find where I live, but I have a good access to Salmon that is fresh enough to eat raw. You don’t like raw salmon? How about to cure the raw salmon in lemon juice based marinade? This refreshing dish is perfect for lunch or dinner on a hot summer day.


4 Servings


300g Fresh Salmon Fillet *skinless, bones removed
1/2 Onion *thinly sliced
1 to 2 stalks Celery *thinly sliced
1/4 to 1/2 Red Capsicum *thinly sliced
1/2 Lemon *thinly sliced
1 tablespoon Finely Chopped Parsley for topping

Lemon Marinade

Zest of 1/2 Lemon
Juice of 1/2 Lemon *2 tablespoons
2 tablespoons White Wine Vinegar
1/2 teaspoon Salt
2 tablespoons Sugar
1 Bay Leaf
Freshly Ground Pepper as required

  1. To make marinade, combine all ingredients.
  2. Cut fresh Salmon fillet into smaller blocks and slice 3-4mm thick.
  3. Place all ingredients in a container in fewer layers, and pour the marinade over. Keep in the fridge to marinate for 2-3 hours.
  4. Arrange the ingredients on a platter, sprinkle some finely chopped Parsley over, which I forgot to do for this photo, and serve.
