Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 ripe avocado pears, peeled and stoned (pitted)
1 very large tomato, skinned and finely chopped

for the corn meal pancakes

115 g (4 oz) 3/4 cup of sifted fine corn meal
115 g (4 oz) 3/4 cup of sifted white rice flour
3 heaped teaspoons of Gluten free baking powder
1 teaspoon of salt
Freshly ground black pepper
2 eggs, lightly beaten

1. Start 2 - 24 hours before eating.

According to this recipe, the salmon is not cooked. Otherwise, sounds pretty good. Are we to assume the salmon is cooked before it's cut and chilled? There's nothing here about how the fish is best cooked or if it's cooked at all.
