Smoked Salmon and Avocado Tartine ~ Savory Simple ~

Remember my Foods from Chile Blogger Challenge post from a couple weeks ago? Well, I finally selected a recipe idea from your submissions and am sharing it today! This smoked salmon and avocado tartine uses 2 of the basket ingredients, smoked salmon and Chilean olive oil. Thanks to Jillian B for the excellent suggestion! As soon as I saw her dish concept I knew I had to make it. The idea of pairing rich, buttery smoked salmon with fatty avocado sounded like magic. And it was. The subtle Chilean olive oil perfectly enhanced the ingredients. Brined capers brought just the right amount of salt and acidity while fresh dill really gave the tartine a seasonal lightness.

Jillian will be receiving a $30 gift bag full of Chilean goodies for coming up with this fantastic idea. Thanks also to Kitchen Play for organizing this event and Foods from Chile for providing me with the ingredients!

    This is absolutely stunning!

  • gailllc

    I want to hybridize this with another appetizer I’ve had — add some strips of lemon zest!

  • Julia |

    I love smoked salmon! In fact I have a ton of it in the freezer. My salmon is fresh smoked salmon so it looks like a regular COOKED salmon, flaky and not thinly sliced like on your photos. Avocado and smoked salmon, topped with capers, go deliciously well together!

    Jen, your smoked salmon looks out-of-this-world divine! Love the food photography here and the color pop. *sigh* You are making me hungry for salmon and I don’t even like it! Haha! (I really want to though.) Just beautiful! xo

    • Jennifer Farley

      Oddly enough, I really don’t like cooked salmon. But raw or smoked is amazing.
