And then make & devour these beautiful smoked salmon pinwheels...
An upstairs-style appetizer that we'll eat downstairs while watching the show.
I'm gearing up for the Sunday night premiere of Downton Abbey with some inspired fare. A quick visit to Pamela Foster's Downton Abbey Cooks, brought me to a super-easy tea recipe for smoked salmon pinwheels. Colorful, packed with flavor and certainly Lady Mary Crawley worthy.
Gather these ingredients. Whipped cream cheese, which is regular cream cheese with lots of air (almost the same stats as low fat cc), smoke salmon, scallions, fresh dill, capers, cucumber, a lemon for juicing and lavash or flatbread.
After you've mixed together this flavorful cheese mixture. Spread on the flat bread, and layout your smoked salmon and cucumber.
Serve on china for full effect. (Though my better half didn't bat an eye when I served him this while watching wild card football.)
Roll tightly and refrigerate until you're ready to eat. Slice and enjoy!
Smoked Salmon Pinwheels
Adapted from Downton Abbey Cooks
1 cup whipped cream cheese
1 tbsp. vodka
¼ cup finely chopped scallions
2 tbsp. capers, chopped
2 tbsp. chopped fresh dill,
1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
freshly ground pepper
8 oz. thin slices of cold smoked salmon
cucumber, cut into thin matchsticks
Whole grain lavash bread (I used Kontos brand, Flatout bread would work well too)
Combine cream cheese, vodka, scallions, capers, dill and lemon juice. Spread approximately 1/4 cup of the cheese mixture on each lavash then top with a layer of smoked salmon. Tightly roll up and trim the ends. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until you are ready to serve. The cream cheese seals the end. Slice into rounds, about 2 inches wide. Serve and enjoy!
