Instruction

Prepare soup

Preheat the oven to 220°C (hot air).

Peel and chop the cucumbers and garlic.

Mix the cucumbers in a tall container with a hand blender.

Add cream, garlic cubes and raspberry vinegar and season with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper.

Prepare Garnish

Put the cucumber soup in the freezer for about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile cut diamonds from 2 layers of strudel dough.

Grease the baking tray with the oil and place the diamonds on top.

Bake the strudel dough sheets in the oven for 8-10 minutes until crispy brown.

Then place on kitchen paper.

Prepare tartare

In the meantime, squeeze out the lemon, dice the salmon and mix with the herbs, lemon juice, salt and pepper.

Finally add the sunflower oil.

Arrange tartare

Arrange the salmon tartare in small bowls, alternating carefully between the salmon tartare and a strudel leaf.

Arrange the very cold soup in deep plates and serve with the salmon tartare.

Serve

Halve the avocado and remove the core.

Finely dice the avocado and season with salt, pepper and lemon juice.

If the avocado is very soft, you can prepare an avocado puree:

Finely crush the avocado pulp with a fork and season to taste.

Then arrange the avocado puree between the strudel dough sheets with a dressing bag and serve with the cold, iced cucumber soup.
