Not Sushi: Smoked Salmon & Avocado Roll-ups



Bet you thought these were sushi?
Maybe not.

These are simple rollups for your New Year's Rockin' Eve appetizers (I ate them for breakfast cause I made them at 9 a.m.).

Here you take a wrap or a lavash and make an herb cream cheese with cilantro, chives, and lemon zest (I used whipped cream cheese for easy spreading).



Spread the herb cream cheese on the wrap then a layer of smoked salmon, then some sliced avocado with a squeeze of lemon and roll baby, roll.



I found some interesting pumpernickel wraps, for a nice contrast.



You can make these a few hours ahead, stick them in the fridge, until ready to slice and plate (they are easier to slice when they have been chilled for a few hours).



Enjoy and have a wonderful HAPPY & HEALTHY NEW YEAR! See you in 2012 with more nonsense and recipes!

What an elegant appetizer Stacey. I love the pumpernickel wraps. I'll have to keep my eye out for them.

Love pumpernickel - how cool to find it in a wrap. I could just poach an egg and have this for breakfast. Happy New Year!

I love that pumpernickel wrap! Will look for it when I'm detoxing, it would be good with tuna too. Happy Healthy, Stacey!

You always come up with novel ideas. I think you're the app queen AND the tart queen. Happy New Year.

Even though I don't eat fish, I'm open to making something like this for a catering job. So pretty and I'm sure people would go nuts over them. Happy New Year to you!

The appearance of complexity that sushi brings but in a finger-friendly wrap that says, "even though you''re on your 8th new year's toast and it's not even officially the new year, you know you can get away with eating me without spilling all over yourself...do it, do it, DO IT!" Perfect for my party!

Yummy! Do you think they'd taste the same with corn tortillas? I need a gluten free substitute...

Move over California roll! Here's my new substitution as my sushi creations are not for public viewing, based on early reactions.
