Anytime I have a large gathering at our house, my smoked salmon roulade is one of the recipes that people can expect to see. Gorgeous, perfectly salted smoked salmon is rolled into a fluffy egg white base with aromatic fresh dill and smooth cream cheese. It always seems to impress everyone, whether they are trying to eat healthier or not.
The name sounds fancy, but roulade really just means “roll”in French, and this recipe is so much easier than it looks. Seriously. Simple and gorgeous at the same time? Sign me up. No one will never guess how easy these little beauties are to make!
Why do I always make these rolls for any get-together, year round? It’s because they are so unbelievably quick and can be made well in advance. That part makes this recipe unique and totally makes it my go-to appetizer for any occasion. Unlike many dishes, you can easily make it a couple of days ahead of time so that you’re not stressing on the day that you need it. There’s no need to heat it up, either. It’s also practical to pack and transport, so it’s perfect to bring along with you to a friend’s house.
Did I mention that this smoked salmon roulade recipe is also healthy? These pretty pinwheels are packed with protein (complete with all the essential amino acids!) and crucial omega-3 fats from the fish. Each roll has less than half a grab of carbs, so they are perfect for any low carb diet.
Fortunately, I find that everyone gobbles these up when I serve them. They just happen to be a low carb appetizer that’s brimming with enough flavor to please anyone. So, whether you’re low carb, gluten-free, both, or neither, this smoked salmon roulade is a winner. Try making it for a crowd and watch how quickly it disappears!
