Smoked Salmon Spirals

This is a simple and old family recipe and is in my book along with many recipes that have been passed down through the ages. Some of these recipes have come as far away as Glasgow and the Isle of Skye. It's great for tea time or even adding as an appetizer for a soirée for friends and family.


Smoked salmon thinly sliced
Chive cream cheese
Salt and pepper
Romaine lettuce, center 'vein' removed
Flour tortillas


Spread tortillas with chive cream cheese. If you can't find chive cream cheese, substitute plain cream cheese and use fresh chopped chives. Top with salmon slices in a single layer. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Add a leaf of romaine lettuce. Roll up tortillas tightly and wrap each in plastic wrap.

Place in a dish and store in the fridge. When ready to serve, unwrap and cut tortillas on the diagonal.

For a low-carb alternative, omit the tortillas. Spread each salmon slice with cream cheese and sprinkle with pepper. Use the romaine leaf as a wrap.
