Smoked Salmon Roll-ups




This was one of my favorite appetizers my family liked me to make on special occasions. They look like a bigger version of sushi rolls only wrapped in a tortilla. I got this recipe out of a traditional Food and Wine festival I attended back in California. The creator of this recipe won $200 as a prized tested recipe. I like sushi and I like wraps so this is a great combination!

2 cups short grain or sticky rice, cooled.
2 Tbsp. toasted sesame seeds
2 Tbsp. rice vinegar
2 tsp. sugar
1/4 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
4 10 inch spinach flavored flour tortillas
2 3oz pkgs. thinly sliced smoked salmon
1 Medium avocado halved, seeded, peeled and sliced
1/2 Medium cucumber,halved lengthwise, seeded and cut into thin sticks

Combine rice and seseme seeds. Combine vinegar, sugar and 1 tsp. salt and stir to dissolve. Pour vinegar mixture over rice mixture. Stir together mayonnaise and cayenne; spread 1 tbsp. mayonnaise mix. over 1 tortilla.
Spread 1/2 cup rice mix. on half the tortilla; top with 1/4 each of the salmon, avocado, and cucumber. Carefully roll tortilla tightly, starting at the filled side. Wrap in plastic wrap. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Chill at least 1hour before serving. To serve, trim ends. Cut remaining roll crosswise into 1 inch thick slives. If you need to, secure with toothpicks to hold them together. This makes about 25 rolls.
