Seared steelhead salmon – Contigo

Seared steelhead salmon - Contigo
Roe, cured mojama, parsnip puree, brussels sprouts, capers, cava butter sauce. Tapas tasting menu
Contigo, San Francisco CA

This was an interesting dish for me. The combination of ingredients was one I hadn’t experienced before, and I’d never had mojama either. I actually thought it was dried prosciutto before I looked at the menu description again. The salmon was good, but I thought it was a bit overcooked. I liked the crispy skin though and the overall flavors of the dish were pleasant.

Crisp fried potatoes, aioli, tomato salsa brava. Tapas tasting menu
Contigo, San Francisco CA

For me, it’s all about the potato preparation and the tomato salsa brava when it comes to this dish. I’ve tried a whole lot of them through my travels, and I know what I like. This version was really delicious and I liked the rich flavor and thick consistency of their salsa. The potatoes were also nicely fried. Noms!

I love the cocas at Contigo. The flatbread always has a great texture and is so flavorful. This wild nettle coca was a new one for me, and it was SO tasty especially with the two types of cheese and bacon.
