  • 1 pound skinless salmon fillet
  • 2 shallots diced
  • 1 tablespoon capers, drained and chopped
  • 1 bunch fresh chives, thinly sliced
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Tabasco to taste
  • Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

Finely dice the salmon.  Be careful you do not tear the flesh.

In a bowl, combine the salmon, shallots, capers, chives, and lemon juice.  Mix well and season to taste with Tabasco, kosher salt and pepper.  Refrigerate 4 hours before serving.  Serve on toast, crackers, or thinly sliced baguette.

***I usually use 1/2 tsp of Tabasco, a big pinch of kosher salt, and a tbsp of ground pepper.  This is just a guide, you can adjust to suit your taste)  Also, I use coarse ground salt for 99.9% of my cooking.  If you are unsure of this recipe, let me assure you it is awesome!  The acid from the lemon juice cooks the fish.  *Warning*  If you make his for a dinner party, make twice the amount.  Your guests will love it and eat it all!
