As a cook for a commercial salmon fishing crew, I found this recipe to be an innovative use of salmon. The roll-ups are a terrific addition to a festive Mexican meal or a fabulous prelude to a steak dinner. —Evelyn Gebhardt, Kasilof, Alaska


  • 1 can (15 oounces) salmon, drained, bones and skin removed or 2 cups flaked cooked salmon
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 4 tablespoons 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 salmon mixture over each tortilla.
  2. Roll up each tortilla tightly and wrap individually. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours. Slice each tortilla into bite-sized pieces.
