If you love beef tartare but don’t love the idea of leaving a bowl of raw beef out at a cocktail party, this recipe is for you. Smoked salmon is a party-friendly alternative that can take the spicy crunch of pickled green peppercorns. Serve it with potato chips and everyone will be happy.

    • 8 oz. smoked salmon, cut into 1/4" pieces
    • 3 Tbsp. green peppercorns in brine or capers, drained, finely chopped
    • 2 tsp. finely grated lemon zest
    • 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
    • 1/3 cup crème fraîche
    • Potato chips (for serving)


    1. Toss salmon, peppercorns, lemon zest, and paprika in a medium bowl until combined. Gently fold in crème fraîche until combined (the mixture should be loose—don’t press it together and don’t chill it). Transfer to a serving bowl. Serve with potato chips alongside.
