  • 200 gr of salmon and smoked trout
  • 200 gr of swordfish
  • 200 gr of courgettes
  • 20 grams of lime juice
  • 20 gr of lemon ice cream
  • 20 gr of oil
  • 2 gr of thyme
  • Salt and Pepper To Taste.


Let’s start by reducing the zucchini into cubes. Sauté them in a pan with a drizzle of oil, pepper, salt and thyme. Once golden, we place them on a plate to let them cool in the refrigerator. We prepare the swordfish and smoked trout tartare, taking care that the fish cubes are the same size as the zucchini cubes. At refrigerator temperature, mix the swordfish, smoked trout and courgettes by adding a drizzle of oil and a few drops of lime. We mix gently. With the help of a pastry ring, we arrange the tartare in the center of the plate. We complete with a small quenelle of ice cream.
