RAW FISH WITH APPLES & APPLE SCHNAPPS
fresh wild fish (no farmed fish: branzino, plaice, halibut, pike, trout), apples, olive oil, salt, cayenne pepper or white pepper, lemon juice, apple schnapps (Parfum de Vie)
Cut the unpeeled apples into small cubes, sprinkle with lemon juice. Chop up capers, olives (remove pips first) and pine nuts thoroughly and mix in with the apple cubes. Fillet the fish, remove skin and bones. Cut the fillets into very thin, small pieces (as in the preparation of salmon). If you are using pike, use only pieces from tail or belly. Season the pieces - make sure there is no "reddish" tissue left - with salt, pepper, lemon juice and apple schnapps, mix in a generous dash of high quality olive oil.
Serve with: fresh white bread
Drink: Apple schnapps and fresh water
