Tartare et Carpaccio

Sea bream tartare with lemon and passion

Hello greedy friends!

I invite you to enjoy a delicious sea bream tartare with lime and passion fruit. 

A very nice, refreshing and rather light starter. There's nothing like enjoying a fish tartare when it's hot outside and you don't want to light the oven to cook something 

That said, because tartare is made up of raw fish, it is essential to take certain precautions 

Choose a fish of great freshness, tell your fishmonger that it is for use in vintage.

What you need to know to make a fish tartare

It is best to freeze your fish 24 hours before using it. Thaw it in the refrigerator and especially not at room temperature, otherwise hello bacterial proliferation 

Wild fish are more likely to contain this famous parasitic worm quest "anisakis". Farmed fish are more controlled and the risk is low.

So to not take any risks we go through the freezing stage before preparing it. This will eliminate the risk of parasitosis

If you are really pressed or caught up in time, you can dive the fish to thaw be previously filmed in cold water to speed up the thing.

But you might as well do things, well. We anticipate and buy our fish the day before.


You can make your tartare a little in advance without seasoning it. Then add the seasoning before moving to the table.

This will save you time and spend more time with your guests

Please, of course, have clean hands, utensils too. Nothing prevents you from taking gloves to handle the fish

Can fish tartare be preserved?

Prepare the right proportions of tartare, knowing that for obvious health reasons, you will not be able to keep your tartare for the evening or the next day for example.

You will have to throw away what has not been consumed.

Or you'll have to cook it, for example, to make a fish rillette.

But don't delay. 30 minutes maximum between the exit of the fridge and its consumption in vintage.
