  • 300g cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp chopped dill
  • generous pinch of black pepper
  • 4 large flour tortillas



    In Spain, a tortilla is a kind of omelette, with ingredients added - frequently sliced cooked…

  • 350g smoked salmon
  • serve with extra dill and rocket leaves


  1. Mix the cream cheese with the lemon juice, chopped dill and plenty of black pepper. Spread over 4 large flour tortillas and cover with the smoked salmon. Roll up like a Swiss roll, trim off the ends and discard. Wrap tightly in cling film, twisting the ends firmly to enclose. Place in the fridge until you are ready to use. To serve, take a sharp knife and slice on the diagonal. Serve with extra dill and rocket leaves.

Looked great, very easy to assemble. Easy to prepare ahead and then all that's left to do is slice up nearer the time. Will definitely make again.

Made these for a large gathering at the week end. I'm still not sure how something so simple could have gone so wrong but it did. They were horrible, so awful that I wouldn't serve them.
I made them the night before, wrapped each one individually in cling film and stored in the fridge to serve the next day. Despite looking like the illustrated picture the wraps (middle of the road price wise) tasted like raw pastry and were sticky. I dismantled them and saved the salmon for something else. Disappointing especially after the positive feed back.

Made this recipe for a party 2 weeks ago. So yummy and it was wiped clean. Everyone loved it and thought I had bought it! =)
I used chives instead of dill and added some wasabi to the cream cheese. I made a vegetarian version with roasted peppers and mushrooms.
Easy to make too!

Made a vegetarian version with garlic mushrooms instead of salmon. Delicious, quick, simple and impressive.

This a great recipe for party food - so easy. I found it worked best if I spread the cream cheese and salmon only two thirds of the way up the tortilla. Then when I rolled it, the filling didn't squidge out at the top.

Very impressed with these! And so were my guests! They were easy to make and tasted great even after being cling filmed In the fridge overnight. Excellent for a buffet party, and they looked really cool! Yum.

Really easy, looked good and went down very well at my party. Also made veggie version by mixing tomato salsa with cream cheese and leaving out salmon - these all went too :-)

We love these! Very simple to do but stunningly tasty. Always go down a hit with guests, much to my irritation as there are never enough leftovers for me to enjoy!

I love making these I often mix the cream cheese with creme-fraiche or natural yoghurt. Also instead of the dill I use a German ingredient called Salat fix. I make them the night before wrap in tin foil and leave to chill in the fridge over night :)

This recipe is a lifesaver - have to take a dish to a party, while in the process of moving house and so have a kitchen devoid of all cookware! always saves the day!

These were brilliant! I didn't use large tortillas so they were all very small and bitesize, but worked wonders. Realised you only really needed to cover 3/4 of the tortilla with salmon or you'd have loads squishing out everywhere.

Tried a veggie option with some of the suggestions on here of hummous and cream cheese. While it tasted relaly good, it was a bit boring to look at so will reinvestigate that shortly.
