The Strawberry Salmorejo with Olive Oil Caviar is a molecular gastronomy dish by Chef Artur Martinez from Capritx (1 Michelin Star) in Spain.

Salmorejo, typical dish from Cordoba in the south of Spain, is similar to a traditional tomato gazpacho but richer and smoother. In this recipe, strawberries are used instead of tomatoes to create a unique dish that it is then topped with Caviaroli olive oil caviar to add a magical touch.
