Smoked salmon roulades make indulgent, creamy little party canapés. Simple to make and tasty, they should be prepared the day before – giving you more time to relax on the night.


  • 200g smoked salmon slices
  • 100g full fat cream cheese
  • 1 dessertspoon chopped chives
  • Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
  • Salt & freshly ground black pepper


1. Mix together the cream cheese, chives and lemon zest.

2. Lay out a sheet of plastic film and onto this place the smoked salmon, slightly overlapping to prevent gaps, to cover an area roughly 10” x 10”

3. Spread over the cream cheese mix.

4. Using the plastic film to help you, roll up the salmon as tightly as you can to form a sausage shape.

5. Wrap in the cling film and twist the ends to tighten the salmon roll and form a neat shape.

6. Chill in the refrigerator overnight.

7. When ready to serve, use a sharp knife to slice into 12 pinwheels and place on a serving plate.

Top Tip

Try with dill in place of chives and lime in place of lemon.
