Before you start

It is recommended to freeze the salmon for about 1 h before using it in order to reduce the number of microorganisms that could contain the flesh.


  1. Finely chop the shallots, capers, dill and tarragon, then put them in a bowl. Pour in the olive oil, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar and Tabasco sauce.
  2. Using a knife, chop the salmon into small pieces until the desired consistency is obtained, then add the pieces to the bowl with the other ingredients. Add salt and pepper.
  3. Form the mixture into flattened mounds and place one mound onto each individual serving plate. Garnish with a few dill sprigs and serve.
