Avocado Tartare

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.
