This recipe is from the *Best Seafood Recipes* of the Australian Women's Weekly cookbook series. I admit to a major revision of the recipe as it was originally for crepe rollups & I was not as interested in 12 crepes & their labor-intensive prep as I was in 6 sliced rollups as a starter course w/the sauce. If you disagree, then feel free to use your favorite crepe recipe to yield 12 crepes (a top & bottom w/the salmon mixture spread in the centers ... then rolled & sliced). If you are into an easier & make-ahead fix w/the same yummy outcome, then give this version a whirl. (Time does not include chilling time) *Enjoy*

This is a great recipe! I used my own homemade French dressing, sheep's cream cheese and gluten free tortillas. This didn't change the original taste I guess because the sheep's cream cheese tastes nearly exactly like the cow's milk one. Thanks for sharing this :)

These are great! Must admit that I did make a modified version. First I used canned smoked salmon. Wanted to serve them as 'finger food' so added the dill and lemon zest to the roll-ups and skipped the lime-butter! Also added about a tablespoon of horseradish. And, since they were finger food, took your advise and used tortillas rather than making crepes (which I don't think would have worked as well). Thanks for sharing Twissis
