From our cooks: Baked Shrimp Tartare


This Baked Shrimp Tartare is a low fibre recipe; perfect as a starter for our Team DSM riders the evening before a mountain stage in a Grand Tour.

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 350g shrimps
  • 75g 0% fat Quark
  • 5g dill
  • ½ clove of garlic, minced
  • 2 slices of white sourdough bread
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 1 stump of little gem lettuce
  • 5g Finca Duernas olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon Chinese 5 spice


  • Cutting board
  • Kitchen machine/mixer
  • Frying pan

Preparation method

  1. Dab the shrimps with kitchen role to dry them.
  2. Heat up the frying pan on a medium heat and add the olive oil
  3. Fry the shrimps for three minutes, then add the garlic and fry them for three more minutes. When the shrimps are done, take them off the heat and set aside.
  4. Put the bread slices on a plate, wash the little gem salad and divide it evenly over the bread.
  5. Mix the lemon juice, Chinese 5 spice, dill and quark in the kitchen machine/mixer until it’s a nice sauce. Then add the shrimps and mix them slowly in the kitchen machine/mixer for a short period (three times for five seconds long). Make sure you don’t blend the shrimps too long because the tartare then becomes a mousse!
  6. Add some salt and pepper to taste, put the shrimp tartare on the bread with the little gem and add some lemon slices for decoration.
  7. Enjoy!
