Appetizer Smoked Salmon Recipe

smoked salmon recipe using crepes

This smoked salmon recipe is an amazing tasting appetizer.

It is smoked salmon rolled into light and airy crepes, with cream cheese, chives and a bit of peppery horseradish.

The crepes can be made ahead and frozen or refrigerated until ready to use. Our easy basic recipe for crepes can be found here.

Smoked salmon appetizers like this salmon crepes recipe are wonderful party finger foods.

I consider this an acceptable diabetes diet recipe because it is relatively low carb and although it has fatty cream cheese, it’s an appetizer, so you don’t eat a plateful. Well, you may if you like it as much as I do. 🙂

They are elegant enough to serve at your best cocktail party, but easy enough to make for any casual get together.

  • Make them look pretty: Wrap each roll with a thin strip of chive. Knot it and cut the ends, leaving about 1/4 inch on each end. Very pretty presentation.
  • Love dill? Simply substitute fresh chopped dill for the chives. Decorate the rolls with a twig of dill.

    Flatbreads for Smoked Salmon Roll Ups

    Here is a variation on the recipe above from S. J. Hutchins of London, Ontario
    I often make Smoked Salmon Roll-ups for parties.
    Make sure you always use the plain, white Flat Breads. The ones that are flavoured with Sundried Tomato or Green Spinach Flat breads look so pretty, but when you try to roll them up into pinwheels………..they will crumble and fall apart. For some reason, the added flavouring makes them dry. But the White flour Flat Breads always roll and slice much better.
    Put them in a Tupperware container with a damp, paper towel over them and refrigerate for at least 5 hours, and they will slice much better. Use a serrated knife………give it a try!
