Salmon carpaccio with citrus ponzu dressing

You'll need

  • 500g
  • Atlantic salmon, skin off, deboned
  • 1
  • head of fennel, shaved

  • ¼ cup
  • micro herbs
  • 2 tbsp
  • lime juice
  • ¼ cup
  • ponzu sauce

Method

Wine to try
2007 TarraWarra Estate Pinot Noir Rosé, Yarra Valley, A$17
This no-fuss dish needs an equally no-fuss wine but one with a colour to match. The TarraWarra is made from pinot noir grapes with a pale salmon colour. But this rosé is much more than a good colour match, with its slightly smoky smell intermingling with strawberry and redcurrant aromatics and a touch of spice. The spice picks up nicely with the fennel, while the light yet decisive flavours work wonderfully with the rich, oily salmon. The citrusy flavours of the ponzu sauce bounce off the wine's fresh acidity. For an alternative, try 2008 Château Riotor Côtes de Provence Rosé - it's a deliciously savoury style.
