MY REVIEW

"These looked all right, but there could be improvements in the flavour.

I would pick the spinach or lettuce over the arugula, which makes it way too bitter.
I would not add any salt since it is not necessary-- smoked salmon is salty enough and the saltiness overwhelmed the cream cheese.
There is no need for lemon zest-- just lemon juice is enough
Dill is a good substitue for the green onion as the green onion enhances salty flavours.
Looks better and tastes better when you spread the cream cheese on the tortilla, then layer a bit of the fish on top, then the greens, then the fish."
