Serves 4, Makes 12

Cucumber and smoked salmon roll-ups

Mix cream cheese, spring onions and dill together and set aside.

Using a sharp vegetable peeler or mandolin, slice the cucumbers thinly lengthways to make long strips.

Lay out 1 cucumber slice, top with salmon slices and spread about 1 heaped teaspoon of cream cheese mixture over it (finishing about a centimetre before the end).

Roll up placing the seam (end) side down or secure with a toothpick.

Place rollups in the fridge until ready to eat. Best made just before serving.

Serving Suggestions


  • These lovely rollups are best made close the time of serving as the cucumber is quite moist and will go a little watery if left for too long. A solution to this if you need a little time up your sleeve is to only use the seedless slices (in which case you may need a couple of cucumbers) and to pat the cucumber dry with kitchen paper towel before rolling.
  • You can also use smoked trout instead of smoked salmon.
