I was not a Sushi fan, till recently. Well, a pseudo sushi fan really, cos i actually like the veggie ones and the smoked salmon ones for some strange reason.
I had guests a couple of days back and bought smoked salmon to serve with blinis' as appetizers, but the plan never materialized due to, lets just say, lack of planning:)
The smoked salmon did cost a bit and the expiry date was nearing and I didn't know what to do with it. That's when I stumbled upon this recipe on foodgawker and decided to give it a shot. Must say its so darn easy, looks fancy and tastes awesome with just soy sauce (like how you eat Sushi) or on its own.
Smoked salmon- 120gms (approx. 6 to 8 thin slivers)
White or brown bread- 4 slices
Any spreadable cheese of your choice (cream cheese) or crème fraiche or even salsa - 4 tbsp (or more if you want it strong)
Cut off the edges from the bread and thin it out using a rolling pin.
Spread the cheese generously 9esp if you don't want that raw fish taste), place two slices of salmon and roll it up gently from one end.
Place a cling wrap ready. Keep the rolled bread on one end and roll it up tightly.
Refrigerate for at least 3 hrs.
Just before serving, remove cling wrap, slice it up and arrange on a fancy plate.
See I told you it was easy.
Stick it on toothpicks and you don't have to get your hands dirty
