    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 enoughDill 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.

    This is a long time favorite. We make it as part of our Christmas tradition. An easy, pungent hors d'ouvre.
