Salmon and cucumber pinwheels

Salmon and cucumber pinwheels
  • Meal Type

  • Courses


Nothing says high tea like a little delicate sandwich. You can use many different fillings. Remember that a generous amount of butter will keep them soft and flavourful, and prevent them drying out.

Makes 24 pinwheels

  • 8-10 slices wholemeal sandwich bread
  • 50g butter, softened
  • 50g cream cheese
  • ½ tsp lemon zest
  • Pinch dill tips or dried parsley
  • 100g smoked salmon
  • ¼ cucumber, cut into thin batons, leave skin on

1 Remove crusts from bread. Combine butter, cream cheese, lemon zest and dill, and season well with salt and pepper. Spread each trimmed slice with a generous amount of lemon cream, lay a small slice of salmon across one end and top with a cucumber baton.

2 Roll up firmly and arrange in a container with the seam rolled underneath, so as to stop unravelling. Chill for 20 minutes and then cut into 3 little bites.
