MethodThinly slice the red onion and set aside.

Zest the lemon and add to a small bowl. To make the gremolata, finely chop the dill, parsley and capers and mix with the lemon zest, sugar, salt and olive oil.

To segment the lemon, cut off the top and the bottom, then slice away the skin and pith. Remove the individual segments from the remaining lemon by cutting between the white lines. Cut the segments into small pieces.

Squeeze the juice from the remaining lemon into the gremolata. Mix and check for seasoning.

Whip the cream cheese with the cream until light and fluffy. Spread onto the board and sprinkle with onions, the lemon segments and then drizzle on ¾ of the gremolata.

Cut the salmon into small strips and place onto the whipped cream cheese. Finish with the remaining gremolata. Serve with hot toasted brioche, cut into triangles.
