1 shallots, finely chopped 40 g
1 1/2 tbsp capers, finely chopped 14 g
4 tsp fresh dill, finely chopped 2 g
4 tsp fresh tarragon, finely chopped [optional] 3 g
1/4 cup olive oil 65 mL
1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed 1/2 lemon
3/4 tsp balsamic vinegar 3.75 mL
1/4 tsp Tabasco sauce 1.25 mL
320 g salmon fillet, chopped into small pieces
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]

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.

An excellent starter for the Christmas menu! I was more generous with the shallots and it was very flavourful.
