1 pound skinless fresh salmon fillet

1/2 pound smoked salmon, thickly sliced 

1/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (3 limes)

1/3 cup minced shallots (2 shallots)

2 tablespoons good olive oil

1/4 cup minced fresh dill

3 tablespoons drained capers

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard

2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

1 loaf seven-grain bread, thinly sliced and toasted, for serving


  1. Cut the fresh salmon and the smoked salmon in 1/4-inch dice. Place the salmon in a mixing bowl and add the lime juice, shallots, olive oil, dill, capers, two mustards, salt, and pepper. Mix well, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for a few hours for the salmon to marinate. 
  2. When ready to serve, toast the bread and taste the salmon for seasonings. Serve the tartare with triangles of the toast.
