  • Add the dressed salmon and top with a scoop of tomato sorbet.

Chefs Notes:
Sorbet - This dish works well with or without the sorbet. If you don't have an ice-cream machine the sorbet mixture can be poured into a shallow tray & frozen. Before it is completely frozen solid, use a fork to scrape the mixture to produce what the Italians call "granite" or a very course form of the churned sorbet. The flavour profile remains the same however the texture is course & will not ball like sorbet, but can be sprinkled on top of the cocktail.
