Smoked Salmon is probably one of my favorite foods (I know what you’re thinking… she has too many favorite foods!) But I’m serious this time! If I had to choose, I would say smoked salmon is my favorite food, with cheese. Hmm… That’s why when I saw this recipe on Foodgawker, I just had to try them out! They were super easy to make too!
I used Grand-ma Bear’s bread from the Old Strathcona Farmer’s Market. She makes the best bread at the market. So fresh, light, fluffy and reasonably priced!
To make the rolls, take a piece of whole wheat bread and chop off the crusts.
I used wild sockeye salmon. Not local at all, but hey, you have to spoil yourself sometimes!
I took the bread slices, and flattened then with a rolling pin.
Then I layered the bread with two pieces of beautiful, pink, fresh pieces of delicious smoked salmon.
Next, I spread some light, plain cream cheese on top of the salmon.
Then sprinkled it with dried dill.
Next, I rolled it up in saran wrap, then let it hang out in the fridge for 3 hrs before serving it.
When ready to serve, slice them up and place on a fancy plate! They turned out looking a little like sushi rolls, but tasted more like lox. They were good though. I could eat a whole plate-full of these!!
For your next party, go ahead and give these a try! They are super easy and were a huge crowd pleaser. I love making appies!

Smoked salmon strips (preferably wild, and from BC!)
About 4 -5 slices of Whole Wheat Bread
3 tablespoons of plain low fat cream cheese
1 tablespoon of dried dill
Cut off the edges from the bread and thin it out using a rolling pin. Spread the cheese generously, place two slices of salmon and roll it up gently from one end. Place a cling wrap ready. Keep the rolled bread on one end and roll it up tightly. Refrigerate for at least 3 hrs. Just before serving, remove cling wrap, slice it up and arrange on a fancy plate.
