Smoked Salmon Whirls Recipe

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Lovely starter or light lunch, with soft smoked salmon and a lightly spiced cream cheese. Looks impressive for guests, but easy to make.

Serves: 4 as a starter, 2 as a light lunch with salad
Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: No cook



5½ oz smoked salmon slices
2 oz smoked salmon pieces, very finely minced, or small prawns, very finely minced
3½ oz cream cheese
3 spring onions, very finely sliced
2 tbsp chopped fresh dill
½ tsp cayenne paper
Fresh dill sprigs, to garnish



Place a sheet of cling film on a work surface. Lay the smoked salmon slices in a rectangle about 8 x 4 inch, overlapping the slices slightly so that there are no gaps.

Mix the cream cheese with the sliced spring onions, chopped salmon or prawns, chopped dill and cayenne pepper and spread over the salmon slices.

Roll the roulade up lengthways and twist the cling film at the ends, so it looks like a Christmas cracker. Chill in the fridge for an hour, if possible.

Slice the roulade into ¾ in slices and arrange on a serving platter. Garnish with dill sprigs and serve.
