A simple shrimp tartare with a layer of avocado, lime marinated raw shrimps topped with lovely strawberry pieces. You’ll impress your guests with this one, and no cooking involved!

Shrimp tartar is quite simple to make and taste simply divine, without saying it’s looks irresistible. The base of the dish is similar to a shrimp ceviche, simply needing to marinate the fresh shrimps in lime juice for a couple of hours. The bigger the size of the shrimp the longer you’ll need to marinate it. By definition, tartare means finely cut and served raw. Most of the time, beef or fish is used but today, will do a shrimp tartare for a change!

Shrimp tartare with strawberries and avocado

I believe strawberries and avocados are a match made in heaven. First, their colors are the perfect contrast and appetising and the creamy smooth avocado and the acidic and firm strawberry pair beautifully.

Variations

You can use this as a tapas dish also, simply add the 3 components to a nice presentation spoon or small bowl and voilà! It would do perfectly also on a bed of lettuce. The strawberry could be substituted by a lovely mango or even pineapple.

Presentation technique

Shrimp tartare with strawberries and avocado

To make the cylindrical tower, you’ll need a 10 cm large cookie cutter. Simply, add the ingredients and gently remove it once filled. It’s as simple as that!

Marinate and Short cuts

Once the shrimp are marinated for 3 hours, you can leave them in the lime juice up to 12 hours and they will still be great, although slightly firmer. If you are in a hurry and or didn’t find the fresh shrimps, you can always use pre cooked frozen shrimps, unfreeze them under cold running water and marinate for an hour in the lime juice.

So let’s get that fresh and light bite going!
