salmon appetizers

An incredibly easy fancy looking appetizer with a Mexican twist!

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling   YIELD: about 48 appetizers.


  • 2 cups cooked salmon, flaked (if you are in a hurry, you can use one 15 oz can of salmon- make sure it’s high quality without a lot of preservatives!)
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 4 tablespoons salsa (mild, medium or hot, your preference!)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1-2 teaspoons chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin, optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt, optional
  • 8 flour tortillas (8 inches)


  •  Drain salmon; remove any bones. In a small bowl, combine salmon, cream cheese, salsa, parsley and cilantro. Add cumin if desired. Spread about 2 tablespoons of the salmon mixture over each tortilla.
  •  Roll each tortilla up tightly and wrap individual with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours. Slice each tortilla into bite-size pieces.
