Instructions Checklist
  • Pulse capers, until coarsely chopped, in a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Add salmon, dill, oil and lemon zest; pulse until salmon is finely chopped and well-mixed. Stir in red onion. Serve with kettle-style potato chips, sesame crackers or toasts. If you assemble the hors d'oeuvres (rather than letting guests make their own), top each tartare-covered toast or chip with a thin slice of lemon, rind and all.

Delicious. Will make again. A nice cool dish in summer. Ate with pretzel crackers. I did not think it was too salty. Too salty could be caused by the salmon (if the person who smoked it left it sitting in the brine too long it gets too salty) the capers (if concerned rinse them before use to totally get rid of salt brine) or the chips/crackers you're eating the stuff on. But for what it's worth I didn't rinse the capers and I used salted crackers so if you find it too salty I'd probably point the finger at your smoked salmon. Read More

It was meh and salty. I used it with BBQ Kettle chips. I highly recommend making this earlier enough to give the flavors time to meld. It was definately better the next day. Read More
