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.

"OMG these sound and look delicious. I can't wait to make them. I am going to add a little touch of dill also."

"Very good. Nice change for roll-ups. I agree with landstromd-I would like to try adding some garlic and/or onion. I used medium salsa and everyone like these, however, sometime I want to spice it up a little more (cayenne or hot salsa) because I like a nice kick. I also love cilantro and may try it with some fresh sometime."

"First, let me say this was fabulous. I did make a number of changes, mainly due to the fact that we don't like cilantro. I added a bit more parsley and a small amount (1/4 ish tsp) basil. Also, the big difference I think was I added garlic powder (a bit) and garlic salt (1/2 tsp). Also, more salsa (medium)

I had put the finished product in the fridge while I went out to get the tortillas and my son and husband had eaten about 1/2 of it as a dip with chips! So good! I'll be sure to make again"
