Salmon Tartare

Prep Time5 mins
Course: Appetizer
Servings: 5 servings


  • 1 pound smoked salmon
  • capers
  • black pepper
  • Quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 lemon


  • Take 1 pound of Smoked Salmon (the one that is ready to eat ).
  • Lay the salmon a large dish (a hand-painted Deruta would add an extra touch), add capers, fresh grated black pepper.
  • Squeeze 1 lemon, mix with good quality Olive oil and dribble on the Salmon.
  • If you like, add some mozzarella slices (being bland, mozzarella combines well with salmon since the latter is salty).
  • Sometimes I also add some basil leaves. Let it sit until your Guest arrive and serve it as is.
  • I usually combine this with a good Salad.


Add the lemon just before serving or it will 'cook' the salmon.
