1 1/2 pounds sushi grade fresh salmon, skin removed

1 English cucumber, thinly sliced

4 tablespoons finely chopped shallots

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh dill

4 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives, plus more for garnish

1 tablespoon capers, coarsely chopped

3 tablespoons lemon juice

12 cherry tomatoes, sliced in 1/2

Salt and pepper

Olive oil

Avocado slices

4 endive leaves, for garnish

Toast points or crackers, for garnish


  1. Cut salmon in small pieces, about 1/4-inch thick. Set aside or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Slice cucumber into very thin (almost transparent) rounds and set aside. In a medium bowl, mix together the shallots, dill, chives, capers, lemon juice and finally add the salmon. Cover and refrigerate if not using immediately. Just before serving, chop the tomatoes, season with salt and pepper and a sprinkling of olive oil, and stir to combine. On a serving plate, spread the cucumber slices to cover 2/3 of the plate, leaving a space in the center of the plate. Then arrange the salmon over the cucumber, then top with the seasoned tomatoes. Garnish with sliced avocado and chopped chives. Serve with endive, toast points or crackers.
