24 pieces


1/2 cup creme fraiche
1 teaspoon wasabi powder
1 scallion or 4 chives, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
12 thin slices smoked salmon
12 stems watercress or parsley


In a small bowl, combine creme fraiche, wasabi, scallion, and lemon juice. Lay salmon slices horizontally on a cutting board. Cut in half vertically. Spread 1 teaspoon wasabi cream down center (vertically).

Place watercress in center vertically, stem at bottom, so that the leaves poke out from the top. Roll horizontally from wide end to thin, gently but tightly. Trim greens if they poke out of the bottom. Repeat with remaining salmon.

Arrange upright on a serving platter. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate 30 minutes or more (up to 6 hours).
