Smoked Salmon Rolls

Smoked salmon is one of those foods that is mainly associated with breakfast/brunch, and I love it!  It certainly isn’t a food that everyone is fond of, but I think those who won’t give it a chance are missing out.  This is a quick and simple way to serve smoked salmon for brunch that is different from the old bagel-and-cream cheese route.  I made mine with chives but I think dill would also be great with these.

Smoked Salmon Rolls


12 slices of wood smoked salmon (4 x 2 ½ inches each)

½ cup cream cheese, softened

¼ cup sour cream

2-3 tbsp. fresh chives, chopped (or fresh basil or dill)

pepper, to taste



Combine the cream cheese and sour cream and mix until smooth.  Place one salmon slice on a work surface and spread with a layer of the cream cheese mixture.  Sprinkle with chives and pepper.  Starting at one of the short ends, roll up the salmon enclosing the filling.  Repeat with remaining salmon.  Cover and chill for up to 6 hours.  Before serving, cut each roll crosswise into 2-3 slices.  Use toothpicks to secure rolls, if desired.
