Smoked Salmon Spring Rolls

22 Dec

This is what happens when Scandinavian Girl collides with Asian Fusion. I love Oriental Spring rolls. I learned to make them while living in France. A friend’s Philippine house keeper  was an excellent cook and thought us how to make spring rolls. When I made these, I used Scottish salmon, fat free cream cheese mixed with sriracha sauce, plus veggies. I served them with sweet chili sauce, but you could use ponzu sauce as well.  The combination was very tasty.  If you are pairing a wine with this, Champagne goes great with the saltiness of the salmon.

Ingredients

  • smoked salmon
  • 1/3 cup fat free cream cheese
  • 1 tsp sriracha sauce or other hot sauce
  • rice spring roll wrappers
  • asparagus, steamed and cooled
  • boston lettuce leaves, washed and dried
  • 1 cup carrots, shredded
  • 1 cup English cucumber, peeled, seeded and cut into matchsticks
Instructions
  1. Mix the cream cheese and hot sauce together.
  2. Prepare a container with hot water for the rice paper
  3. Add a wrap for about 30 seconds, or until pliable
  4. Lay the wrap on a clean surface, pat dry with paper towel
  5. Place a salmon slice on the middle of the wrapper
  6. Spread cream cheese and spice mix on the salmon
  7. Place a lettuce leaf on top
  8. Add a little of each veggie to the middle
  9. Fold the sides in first
  10. Roll up from the side nearest you to the other end, the rice paper will stick to itself
  11. Repeat with the next wrapper
  12. Place the rolls in the fridge, if you are not eating right away, wrap each roll in plastic wrap to prevent drying and sticking to each other
  13. Serve with a sauce of your choice

    This sounds really good. I’ve never tried spring rolls with salmon before. And the colors make them look amazing. Happy Holidays!
