- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 4 tablespoons lime juice
- 4 tablespoons nuoc nam
- 4 salmon fillets (or divide all quantities by 2 if it is for the first course)
- 3 lemongrass stalks
- 1 shallot
- 1 sprig fresh mint
- 1 tablespoon coriander (chopped)
- 1 red pepper (to taste)
- Mix the sugar, lime juice, and nuoc nam in a small bowl.
- Dice the salmon and place in a bowl.
- Cut off both ends of the lemongrass stalks: keep the most fleshy portion (about 5-6 cm. from the base, the rest is too stringy), and remove the first two leaves because they are harder. Cut the stalks into thin slices diagonally (to break the fibers). Add to the fish.
- Finely chop the shallot, mint, and coriander and add to the fish.
- Cut the pepper into small pieces and add to the fish.
- Mix well.
- Refrigerate until ready to serve.
- Add the sauce at the last moment and mix well before serving. Serve the tartare with lettuce or cucumber salad (with the same seasoning).
- If you don't like raw fish too much: pour the sauce over the salmon 15 minutes before serving and mix well: the lime will cook the fish a little bit.
