Tres generaciones Reposado Casa Sauza

Apple and chili chutney:

  • 50 ml of Tres Generaciones® Reposado Tequila
  • 1 Tsp butter
  • 1 green apple, diced
  • 2 Tsp of blond raisins
  • 50g of dry chile de árbol (or cayenne pepper) (without seeds and chopped)
  • 75 ml rice vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 2 Tsp fresh mint


  • 1 pink salmon fillet
  • Salt (to taste)
  • White pepper (to taste)
  • 200 g of serrano ham, in slices
  • Olive oil (to taste)


  • 100 ml sweet lime juice
  • 50 ml orange juice
  • 1 Tsp fresh ginger, chopped
  • 2 Tsp chinese parsley, chopped
  • 25 g coriander, chopped
  • 2 Tsp butter
  • 1 tsp ground paprika



Apple chutney:

In a deep frying pan, place the apples, butter, and the Tres Generaciones® Reposado Tequila. Cook at low temperature until a thick, lumpy consistency is obtained. Add the raisins and the chile de árbol. Afterwards, add the rice vinegar and let cook. Season with sugar and chopped mint. Adjust seasoning to taste (a bittersweet flavor is what you are going for). Set aside.


Cut the salmon into medallions or 200 g slices, season with salt and pepper to taste. Wrap with slices of Serrano ham and cook on a frying pan with a little olive oil.


In the same pan where the salmon was previously cooked, place the sweet lime and orange juice. When it starts boiling, add the ginger, chopped parsley and coriander. Blend it all and strain. Return to the same pan and cook at low temperature. Adjust seasoning and emulsify with the remaining butter. Season with paprika at the end.


Serve the salmon with the chutney on a plate. Top with the sauce and fresh green apple dices.
