Ingredients

  • 8 oz smoked salmon or smoked salmon trimmings
  • ¼ cup red onion minced, about ½ medium onion
  • 1 jalapeño minced
  • 1 ½ Tbsp capers drained
  • 2 Tbsp scallions thinly sliced and/or chives
  • 1 lemon zested, plus 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp dill finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ tsp Kosher salt

Instructions

  • Finely chop smoked salmon. If the smoked salmon is cut into slices, use a sharp knife to give it rough chop into small, bite-size pieces. Place the salmon in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add remaining ingredients. To this, add ¼ cup minced red onion, 1 minced jalapeño, 1 ½ Tbsp drained capers, 1 Tbsp thinly sliced scallions (or chives), the zest of 1 lemon, 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice, and 1 Tbsp finely chopped dill.
  • Toss with olive oil. Add 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil, then stir well. Taste, then season with ¼ tsp Kosher salt, if needed, adding more as desired. Refrigerate until needed (we recommend 1 hour, if possible to help the flavors meld together), but you can absolutely serve immediately!

Notes

  • Smoked salmon salad can be made up to 3 days in advance.
  • Nutrition facts include the salmon salad only, not bagels or cream cheese.
