Cucumber and Smoked Salmon Sandwiches


Source: MSL Cookbook Vol. 2; The New Classics


  • 1/4 pound smoked salmon, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 jalapeno chile, seeded and finely chopped
  • Finely grated zest of 1 lime
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 English cucumber
  • 1/4 cup creme fraiche, well chilled
  • 1 lime, peeled and segmented, each segment cut into 4 pieces


  1. Make tartare: In a small bowl, combine salmon, onion, cilantro, jalapeno, and zest. Season with salt and pepper.

  2. Using a paring knife or vegetable peeler, remove skin on two opposite sides of cucumber. Trim the ends, and cut cucumber crosswise into 48 slices, 1/4 inch thick. Place slices on paper towels to dry.

  3. Using a butter knife or a small offset spatula, spread about 1/2 teaspoon of creme fraiche on half of the cucumber slices, and then top with a teaspoon of tartare. Place remaining cucumber slices on top, followed by a small dollop of creme fraiche and a piece of lime. Serve immediately, or chill, covered with plastic wrap, up to 1 hour.
