I’m always on the look out for good easy appetizers. I want something simple to make, yet fresh and delicious to eat. Nothing too heavy, as I still have a nice dinner coming.
This avocado tartare fit the bill nicely with a colorful presentation and textural delight. The tartare was made very similar to a beef tartare, with chopped up avocado instead of beef, and the additional of capers, diced onion, cilantro, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, and minced jalapeño. I put it in a ring mold for a striking presentation… then fried my egg in the same ring mold to mimic the circular shape. I served it with our own house smoked salmon and home made lavosh crackers. It was perfect. The running egg added a great creaminess to the rich tartare, while the pop of briney capers paired perfectly with the succulent salty salmon. Definitely a make again.
