  • I love the creamy texture of Atlantic salmon for this recipe. It's also the mildest salmon and therefore will appeal to more people.
  • Our favorite is to serve it on rye or pumpernickel bread.
  • Garnish with fresh dill and top with salmon roe for a festive look at your next party!

  • 1 pound Atlantic salmon, boned and skinned
  • 2 tablespoons creme fraiche
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons red onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  •  couple of fresh dill sprigs for garnish
  • 1 ounce salmon roe for garnish (optional)

  • The texture of the tartare is better if the salmon is coarsely chopped by hand.
  • Mix all ingredients in a bowl and gently mix in the salmon.
