Tartine Tuesday: Smoked Salmon Tartare-tines

Tartar-tine Tuesday: Smoked Salmon Tartines

This is a quick one, just wanted to plug in my lunch before I got back to the daily grind! Bon app' :)

Smoked Salmon Tartare-tines

4 large multi-grain crackers
2-3 slices of smoked salmon, diced
4 teaspoons red onion, minced
4 teaspoons capers
4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons lemon juice
4 tablespoons crème fraîche
2 teaspoons fresh dill, chopped
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander (if you can freshly grind whole coriander seeds, this is better)
1/4 teaspoon lemon zest
fresh dill sprigs, for garnish
salt and pepper, to taste

In a small bowl, combine the smoked salmon, red onion, capers, olive oil, and lemon juice and mix thoroughly. Season with freshly ground black pepper, to taste. Let sit for about 5 minutes to let the flavors meld together.

Combine the sour cream, dill, ground coriander, and lemon zest in a small bowl and mix thoroughly. Salt to taste.

Top each cracker with smoked salmon tartare and top with a dollop of the crème fraîche mixture. Top with a few fresh sprigs of dill. Serves 2-4.
