H&D zingy salsa for fish

June 17, 2016

 

So, when in New York last summer I was lucky enough to eat at two of David Chang's places - Ma Peche in Midtown and Ssam bar Downtown.

While I could go on about Ma Peche and its delicious Crack Pie I'd like to tell you about a salsa we had with our meat at Ssam.

It was herby, mustardy, sweet, sour and just amazing. I asked for the recipe and they kindly gave it to me. It had loads of ingredients including ramps, a varietal of spring onion which we don't tend to grow here.

The other night though we were having dinner and a business meeting - I'd picked up two light smoked salmon fillets, Jersey Royals and salad - the perfect time to make a green salsa.

I looked up Jamie Oliver's recipe for salsa for fish and basically combined his and David Chang's to make an H&D version.

Here it is for you to try - but don't get too hung up. The secret is good olive oil and lots of mustard - the herbs can be what you like as long as they are chopped finely, preferably using a mezzaluna.
