So, we appear to be into summer. We have enjoyed a couple of hot days, and also a few wintery ones, with a risk of frost to our flowerbeds. Let’s hope we are now ok for the duration. Being outside might mean more time to enjoy al fresco dining. Our family has found that putting together a variety of finger foods, rather than preparing a large meal, is a great way to have more time to sit, chat, drink and eat. Today’s recipe only takes a few moments to prepare, but it’s a terrific addition, assuming you like fish or seafood. They are Smoked Salmon Rolls, and you can make any number of them by simply getting more of the ingredients.

Smoked Salmon Rolls Ingredients:

  • 1 package of Smoked Salmon (preferably Nova, our great Canadian product)
  • 1 or 2 packages of plain cream cheese
  • 1 red onion, chopped very fine (optional)
  • Some dill
  • 1 package of tortilla shells


  • Open up the package of tortilla shells and spread out 4 or 5 on your counter
  • Spread each with a coating of cream cheese
  • Spread chopped onions over the cream cheese
  • Sprinkle a bit of dill on the onions and cream cheese
  • Lay over slices of Smoke Salmon to cover the cream cheese and onions
  • Roll them up and place them in the fridge till they are cool
  • Slice them into 2 inch rolls (the end pieces are for immediate consumption for those people hanging around the chef and just looking for this opportunity.)

Serve cold on a nice platter and enjoy! Goes well with a nice cold white wine or spritzer. Best to all! As always, please keep in touch at
