Cold-smoked salmon is one of my favorite brunch foods. For an even fancier presentation, I decided to add a few ingredients and turn it into a tartare to serve atop crackers or crostini. Your guests will love this any time of day!

  • Evenly distribute salmon mixture onto crackers. Top with lemon zest, chives, and cracked black pepper.

Cook's notes: Instead of serving the salmon tartare on crackers, you could pack it tightly into a ring mold, then place on a serving plate to let guests serve themselves.

Feel free to use caper brine in place of pickle brine
