A holiday appetizer that’s tasty, easy, festive and elegant.

Smoked Salmon & Salmon Roe Pinwheels

Ingredients (For each roll)

  • 1 flat bread white flour wrap (e.g. Lavash) (About 11 inches)
  • ½ lb container smoked salmon & cream cheese with scallions
  • Lemon wedge
  • Fresh dill
  • 8 teaspoons sour cream
  • 4 teaspoons salmon roe caviar


Lay the flat bread on non-stick aluminum foil and, using a flexible spatula, spread the smoked salmon mixture evenly in the center of the bread, leaving a one inch margin around the outside. Squeeze a few drops of lemon and a scant teaspoon of snipped dill over the salmon spread. Then fold the sides of the bread to form a rectangle to enclose the filling. Gently roll up into a log shape and wrap in foil. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Right before serving, unwrap the foil and trim both ends of the log with a serrated bread knife. Then cut the log into eight 1 inch slice. Lay the slices carefully on their sides and spoon 1 teaspoon of sour cream on the edge of each slice. On top of the sour cream spoon ½ teaspoon of salmon caviar. Snip some dill over all and serve.

Makes 4 slices
