La Provence

Cured Salmon in Lemon Cucumber Cups with Green Tomato ConCassé and Crème Fraîche     

Tomato ConCassé

6 green Zebra tomatoes or other green heirloom tomato
1 shallot, thinly sliced and chopped
3 tbsp. rice vinegar
¼ tsp. sugar

In a small sauté pan, bring the sugar and vinegar to a boil. Turn off and remove from heat. Add the shallots to the vinegar mixture and stir to coat. Cut the tomatoes in half and squeeze out seeds. Chop the tomato and add to the vinegar mixture. Let sit for one hour at room temperature for flavors to bloom.

Cured Salmon in Lemon Cucumber Cups

6 lemon cucumbers, seeded, cut in half to make one cup
4 ounces cured wild salmon (lox), cut paper thin
1 cup Tomato ConCassé
¼ cup Crème Fraîche
sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste

Cut cucumbers along the short side and scoop out the seeds to make one cup. Place a piece of the cured salmon in the cup with a  small “flag” sticking out of the top. Next to this, place a small amount of the green Tomato ConCassé. Drizzle with a thin ribbon of crème fraîche. Add sea salt and pepper to taste.
