Recipe Description

This recipe is a striking and brilliant way to serve citrus-cured ceviche salmon, with caviar for added flair.

Use sockeye (fresh or frozen) for the best colour impact in this pasta. If salmon caviar is not your thing — you can make this without it.

If you’re not serving a salad and/or you want to add some colour, feel free to toss in some cilantro, rapini, kale or spinach. Yum.

Serve it with hot french bread, a salad and a dry, fruity white wine.

Homemade fish stock is best for cooking the pasta for this one. And easily done: just ask your fishmonger for a head from a white-fleshed fish. Halibut is usually a good choice for stock. Submerge it in just enough water to cover, add 2-3 peppercorns, bay leaf and a sprig of tarragon. Bring to the boil and simmer no more than 30 minutes: if you cook it longer, it may develop a bitter taste. Strain and use immediately or freeze.
