It begins to make good weather and you are fond of fresher dishes. Does not it happen to you? I’m so looking forward to summer! Fortunately, the days of cold and rain are falling behind and the body asks for lighter meals. In our menu you will find a great variety of dishes, but today we will talk about salmon and avocado tartar, which can be a great option for these days.
In El Espigón you can enjoy different tartars, one of our specialties, as we have told you on other occasions, as for example in the case of bluefin tuna. In fact, the month of May is one of the best to taste this blue fish. Even so, this type of dishes we love because they can bring a different touch to any menu and our customers and friends like to enjoy it little by little with some bread toast.
The tartar that we propose to you today is formed mainly by salmon and avocado, two very complete foods, nutritionally speaking, and whose flavors complement to the perfection making of them a perfect marriage.
All about salmon
Salmon is a blue fish rich in Omega 3 fatty acids which, as we have highlighted in previous posts, helps to lower cholesterol and, therefore, maintain our heart health. In addition, this type of fish has a high protein content and is characterized by the contribution of minerals such as phosphorus, selenium, iodine and potassium. It also contains vitamins, most of them from group B.
In addition to the great benefits that salmon can bring us in our diet, perhaps the most curious thing about this fish is the migratory journey that it carries out throughout its life. It is born in the rivers, where it lives between 1 and 5 years, later travels to the sea to continue growing and developing and, finally, returns to the river where it was born to reproduce.
Avocado, a fruit-made delicacy
As for avocado, the other component of our tartar, also stands out as a food of great nutritional value. This fruit has a high content of monounsaturated fatty acids such as oleic acid as well as potassium, magnesium and vitamins C and E – the latter is a superb antioxidant. For a long time, this food has been viewed with “bad” eyes because it can gain more weight than other types of fruit, but it is really worth consuming as it lowers cholesterol levels thanks to its fatty acids and its fiber content.
For this type of preparations it is very important to have some ingredients of a very high quality and, in addition, the avocado, should be at its optimum point of maturation. Neither too green nor too mature. There is nothing richer than an avocado at its point!
As you see, these two foods are very healthy, complete, they are great and the combination of both results in a nutritious, but at the same time tasty plate. Its mellow texture and delicate flavor, accented with a special dressing, make this tartar a delicious bite that has proven to be a superb entree for any occasion.
