Total Time15 mins
Course: Appetizer
Cuisine: Italian
Servings: 5 servings


  • 1 pound Smoke Salmon
  • Capers
  • Black Pepper
  • Olive Oil Extra Virgin
  • 1 Lemon Fresh
  • 2 piece Avocado
  • Greek Yoghurt/Mozzarella Optional


  • Take 1 pound of Smoked Salmon (the one that is ready to eat)
  • Lay the salmon a large dish (a hand-painted Deruta would add an extra touch), add capers, fresh grated black pepper.
  • Squeeze 1 lemon, mix with good quality Olive oil and dribble on the Salmon.
  • Leave the smoked salmon to marinate for at least 5 minutes. It's best if you start preparing just before you'd want to serve, as it's the best to be served fresh. Form flat balls of the salmon for nicer serving. If you have forms to make it, even better!
  • For the avocado you can either chop it and add on top of the salmon balls or you can mix it with Greek Yoghurt or mozzarella and add it as a creamy layer on top.
  • If you like Mozzarella, you can slice it instead and add it separately on top of the meat, but this is optional as the Greek Yoghurt version.
  • Add the lemon just before serving or it will 'cook' the salmon. You can serve near other appetizers, such as salad.
