  • A little salt
  • 200 g (7 oz) organic salmon, skin and bones removed, cut into 5mm (¼ inch) dice
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 8 thin slices of ‘crunchy crust’ bread – such as ciabatta, French bread sticks or baguette


Directions:

Mix the kiwifruit, ginger, spring onions, lemon juice and two pinches of salt together.
Let the mixture stand for 10 minutes.
Combine the salmon, half the olive oil and the remaining spring onion.
