Smoked Salmon Spread

For little crostini or just eating by the spoonful, this is amazing stuff. Took 10 minutes to make. The key is to get some good smoked salmon, of course. Enjoy!

Smoked Salmon Spread
Makes about 1.5 cups - Serves 4-6 as an appetizer

About 6 oz. smoked salmon, chopped and mashed with a spoon or fork
2 shallots, minced
1 T capers, minced
3-4 fresh chives (about 1 T total), minced
1 tsp fresh dill, minced
1-2 T mayonnaise, to taste
Juice of 1/2 lemon, to taste
Splash of hazelnut or argan oil
Fresh ground green or black pepper and sea salt or Kosher salt to taste

Mix all ingredients together. Balance flavors with salt, pepper and lemon as needed. Spread on toasted baguette slices, or crackers, or scoop onto a salad of mixed greens, chopped egg and a lemon vinaigrette.
