Not Sushi: Smoked Salmon & Avocado Roll-ups
Bet you thought these were sushi?
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!
