6 ounces salmon fillet, center cut, finely diced

1/2 tablespoon sambal

1 cup diced Asian pear, tossed with lemon juice

1 tablespoon chopped chives

1 tablespoon olive oil

Salt and black pepper to taste


3/4 cup balsamic vinegar

1/4 cup Chinese vinegar


  1. In a chilled bowl, toss everything together. Check for seasoning. Mold tartar in small "O" rings-2 1/2-inches, or small ramekins. Garnish with syrup and chives.
  2. 2 VINEGAR SYRUP: In a non reactive pan, slowly reduce both vinegars by about 70 percent until a syrup consistency is achieved. Keep in mind it will thicken as it cools.
