Cheesy Smoked Salmon Appetizers

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 0 mins

A simple appetizer that always looks impressive. Can be made up to 1 day in advance. Keep refrigerated. This uses one large packet of the smoked sliced salmon that you find in the deli. The appetizers should look similar to small sushi rolls

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Lay a sheet of good quality baking paper or a double layer of aluminum foil on your bench top. Spread the salmon onto the paper to form a large square shape. Overlap each slice- there should be no gaps and you must be able to roll the salmon later and have the slices hold together.
  2. In a bowl mix all remaining ingredients. Spread this mixture over the salmon.
  3. Using the paper or foil. Roll the salmon. The cream cheese will end up in the centre of the salmon rolls. Refrigerate until required.
  4. Slice into approx one inch rolls (they'll look like small sushis). Sprinkle with extra finely chopped chives, or parsley.

After seeing a photo of this, I knew I had to try it. Yesterday was the day when we had friends over for a bar b q. Everyone loved the smoky, creamy taste and flavor of this oh so simple to make appy. Not a piced was left. The only thing I did differant was squeeze some of the fresh lemon juice into it while adding the lemon rind and used finely chopped Walla Walla Sweet onions and then sprinkling the top with the chives. Made it a day in advance so the flavors had a chance to blend and easy to slice. This was enjoyed by everyone and not a piece was left.

Delicious little bites! I scaled this down for one serving and it was yummy. Thanks! Made for ZWT#9 2013 by a member of team Hot Stuff.

I served these as a first course with greens and crusty bread. They looked and tasted really good. I used a lot of spring onions instead of chive and added lemon juice. I kept them rolled up in the freezer for an hour before serving, so they were easy to slice.
