Appetizers: lumpfish roe and cream cheese wraps

Here is another quick appetizer idea for a platter of appetizers.

I have used lavash bread but tortilla or thin pita bread can be used.

Ingredients
Makes + 15 pieces
Prep: 10 min

For the cream cheese mix

  • 3 tbps of lumpfish roe
  • 100 g of cream cheese
  • 1/2 cucumber (seeds off), thinly cut, using a mandoline or a vegetable peeler
  • Chives, chopped
  • Salt and fresh pepper to taste

For the wraps

  • Soft Lavash flatbread
  • Lettuce or any green leave, chopped if rough.
  • Cherry or mini-plum tomatoes
  • Or black olives, pitted

Preparation
 
Make the cream cheese ahead of time and place in the fridge for 1 hour or 2.

Spread over the lavash bread. Place the green leaves. You can even add shredded carrots at this point.

Roll up tight, making a long roll. Wrap in a cling film and chill.

To serve, cut into about 2 cm thick slices/pinwheels. Cut the tomato lenghtwise (or not), as well as the olive, place them on the top and fix the whole pinwheel with a toothpick.

 

This is what happen when you do not roll the wraps tight!

Serve cold.
