  1. Marinate the salmon with salt, sugar and orange zest and then place it in the fridge to rest for 25 minutes
  2. Take the salmon out of the fridge, wash in cold water and dry it
  3. Blanch all the vegetables in salted water for three minutes and then cool down in ice water
  4. Chop the ginger and the chives, mix them with extra virgin olive oil and keep aside
  5. Slice the marinated salmon horizontally across the whole length of the fillet with a sharp knife to create a rectangular carpaccio-like thin slice
  6. Place one slice on each plate and season it with the chopped ginger and chives
  7. Dress all vegetables, the cress and the salad on top of the salmon slice
  8. Add the red shrimp, caviar and a pinch of salt flakes to finish


Chef’s Tip: Try to use wild and not farm salmon. In case only farmed salmon is available, choose the organic or certified sustainable option
