Smoked Salmon Roll Ups


I pretty much slept through New Year’s Eve and most of New Year’s Day, which is why I’m still making and eating “party food” two days later. But, smoked salmon is just as tasty on January 2nd — especially when it’s wrapped around a creamy, tangy filling.


There’s no recipe per se… simply mix together softened goat cheese (I used Montchevre) with lemon zest, a squeeze of lemon juice, capers, and fresh dill.

Spread the mixture on thinly sliced smoked salmon cut into appetizer-sized pieces.

Roll up!


Garnish at will and enjoy a sublime start to any meal… or year.

Enjoying a late start in 2017,

  3. I thought I am the only one who outrageously shares ‘too simple’ recipes on the blog :) You boosted up my spirit <3 Thanks a billion for that! How is the new year treating you so far?
    – Please share more Salmon recipes but please O please, don't make it 'FRENCH' ! I don't do French in my kitchen!
    – Hugs and kisses <3

    • Nusrat, a thousand pardons for replying so late to your heartfelt comment. (I’m soooo far behind!) However, I did enjoy (and make) your delectable Citrus Sesame Cakes after I “alluded” I did. (Took photos, too.) The simple joys of life are rife with unexpected flavors and textures! :) Give me a shout w/your email info (if it doesn’t breach your privacy) on my “public” contact email address (see my About page.) I’d love to share my “feedback” w/u!

  4. I’ve made something similar to bring to parties when you must bring a dish and it’s always popular. Happy New Year, my friend and may 2017 bring wonderful experiences into your life.

    • Maureen, you just solved the quandry of “what to bring” to a ladies’ luncheon tomorrow. (Duh… still have a sealed pkg of smoked salmon and 3/4 a “log” of Chevre, etc… easy peasy.) I’m sure it’ll be a hit, thanks for your recommendation. THANK YOU and Happy New Year! Let’s hope for better health (or spines) in 2017… or as the ol’ country song goes: I’m too young to feel this d*** old. ;)

    • Shirley, I’ve been SO remiss on commenting on your blog (apologies…) — I just mentioned your Luminaria post to my hubby this morning, saying how BEAUTIFUL it was, I had to “back out” until I could spend more time enjoying the wonder of it all! YOU bring that kind of lovely LIGHT to my world with your thoughts and enduring friendship, xo… back at’ya soon! YAY for Chinese New Year and more smoked salmon!

    • Maree, I SOOOO agree (although my preference would be cream cheese… sigh) BUT, I can’t complain, especially when eating “the best flavour combo in the world” for breakfast! :) Happy New Year, my sweet!

    • Thank you, Liz! “Simple, tasty, and delicious” may well become my mantra for 2017. ;) I’m not up to par endurance-wise “IMK” yet, but that doesn’t mean I have to sacrifice flavor or pleasure… sounds like we’re on the same page, xo!
