Sashimi with Avocado Purée and Tamarillo Salsa

Sashimi with Avocado - V03

We were lucky enough to receive a lovely box of these beautiful tree tomatoes from our friends at Tasty Tamarillos.

Tamarillos are low in calories and provide good dietary fibre, vitamins and antioxidants.

This recipe is an absolutely stunning entree and very easy to put together. If you don’t like raw fish by all means pan fry a beautiful piece of salmon, tuna or fish as a replacement.


Around 100g each of salmon, tuna loin and a nice buttery white fish (butterfish, monk fish, tarakihi, snapper)
Avocado Purée
1 ripe avocado
2 tbsp sour cream
1 tbsp high quality olive oil
1/2 limes juice
Pinch of salt & pepper
Tamarillo Salsa
1 Tamarillo (peeled)
3 cherry tomatoes
1/4 red onion
4 basil leaves
1/4 red chilli (deseeded)
1/2 lime juice


For the fish – skin and bone if needed and cut into slices approximately 0.60cm thick. You will need a nice sharp knife for this to get a smooth line. Don’t saw, just slice through. Set aside.

For the avocado purée add all ingredients to a food processor and blitz until smooth.

For the tamarillo salsa chop the tamarillos, cherry tomatoes and onion into small cubes and add to a small mixing bowl. Red onion should be more finely chopped than the others. Chop up basil leaves and chilli finely and add along with lime juice.

To serve add a dollop of avocado purée and swipe across plate like a pro! Place slices of raw fish on top and drizzle over Tamarillo salsa!

Hope you enjoy and watch this space for more tasty Tamarillo recipes!
