The Tartare

400gm Diced beef eye fillet (approx. 5mm cubes)
1T Finely diced shallot (approx. 2mm dice)
1T Finely diced capers (approx. 2mm dice)
1T Finely diced gherkins (approx. 2mm dice)
1T Finely chopped parsley (approx. 2mm dice)

To assemble the dish combine the beef fillet, shallot, capers, gherkins, parsley & seasoned mayonnaise in a non reactive bowl. Beat well with a wooden spoon until well combined and creamy. Taste for seasoning and adjust with flaky sea salt & pepper.

My favourite way of eating the tartare is on some chargrilled bread, shaved parmesan and watercress
