Great finger food or the perfect starter for a dinner party.


3 tbsp finely chopped shallots.

3 tbsp finely chopped ginger.

1 tbsp soy sauce.

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil.

Lavosh crackers.

150g sashimi-quality salmon.

2 tbsp crumbled fetta.

1 tbsp finely chopped chives.


Mix together the shallots and ginger and leave for 1 hour for the flavours to infuse. Add the soy sauce and olive oil to make a paste. Set aside.

Use a knife to break the crackers into pieces about 4cm by 6cm. Cut the salmon into 3mm thick slices and lay on the crackers. Spread some ginger paste (about half a teaspoon) over the salmon then sprinkle with a little feta and chives. Serve immediately.
