Salmon Appetizers Recipe

As a cook for a commercial salmon fishing crew, I found this recipe to be a wonderful variation in the use of salmon. It's terrific as an addition to a festive Mexican meal or as a delicate prelude to a steak dinner.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling YIELD:16 servings


  • 1 can (15 ounces) salmon or 2 cups cooked salmon, flaked
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 4 tablespoons mild or medium salsa
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin, optional
  • 8 flour tortillas (8 inches)


  • 1. Drain salmon; remove any bones. In a small bowl, combine salmon, cream cheese, salsa, parsley and cilantro. Add cumin if desired. Spread about 2 tablespoons of the salmon mixture over each tortilla.
  • 2. Roll each tortilla up tightly and wrap individual with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours. Slice each tortilla into bite-size pieces. Yield: about 48 appetizers.
