Smoked salmon tartare with avocado

Serves 10 as canapés
  • @HixRestaurants

I've recently starting using both plain and spiced mini papadoms for canapé bases; they're perfect in terms of their size and texture.

20 plain mini papadoms

120g smoked salmon or trimmings of smoked salmon, finely chopped
tbsp crème fraîche
Half a very ripe avocado
Juice of half a lemon
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Dill, for garnishing

Mash up the avocado and add a little lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste. Mix the salmon with enough crème fraîche to bind it.

To serve, place roughly half a teaspoon of the avocado in the centre of each papadom and then spoon the salmon over the top.

Scatter over the sprigs of dill.
