Smoked Salmon Avocado Toast

Serves 1 | Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 5 minutes

Though often eaten for breakfast. It’s a quick dinner strategy I like to use whenever time is scarce. Make as little or as much as you have at home.


  • 1 slice country or sourdough bread, approximately 1/2 inch thick
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon (15g) goat cheese, or enough to spread a thin layer over surface of bread
  • 1/2 medium pitted and peeled Haas avocado
  • 1 teaspoon capers, plus more to taste
  • 2 slices tomato from 1 medium tomato (optional)
  • 3 thin slices red onion, cut in rounds from 1 medium onion
  • 3 pieces thinly sliced smoked salmon
  • Freshly squeezed lemon juice to taste, from 1/2 lemon
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Chef Tips


Step 1

Lightly brush bread with olive oil and toast to desired level of doneness. Spread goat cheese over surface. Top with avocado and mash with a fork to cover entire surface. Sprinkle capers evenly across surface and top with tomato, red onion, and smoked salmon. Add lemon juice and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Eat right away.
