I think I've found my new favorite way of preparing salmon. I might be biased, as I love raw fish, but man, this dish is so incredibly good. I really think it's my new favorite dish for potlucks or dinner parties. It's got all the elements of perfect entertaining food: it's easy to make, relatively inexpensive, can serve quite a few people, and looks stunning when presented.
Oh, did I mention that it tastes absolutely phenomenal? And that it's a Thomas Keller recipe?
Similar to gravlax, this salmon is marinated in coarse sea salt, sugar, white pepper, and zest from a bounty of citrus fruits overnight. What results is a beautiful citrus-infused salmon tartare, which pairs beautifully with potato blinis and greens with citrus vinaigrette.
