When I used to make these in the UK, big slices of smoked salmon were more readily available. With those slices you can omit the tortilla, which makes them prettier – but less filling. But the smoked salmon I find in the US are in small pieces, so you'll need a tortilla wrap to hold it all together.
I use Mission Carb Balance Fajita tortillas which are about 8″ diameter and 4g net carbs per wrap.
How to Make Low Carb Smoked Salmon Pinwheels
Spread some cream cheese over a low carb tortilla. Then add a layer of smoked salmon, ensuring that you leave one edge empty so that the cream cheese acts like glue when rolled. Sprinkle some fresh dill leaves over – you don't need too many – and season with black pepper. Chopped chives would be a good alternative to dill.
Roll up the tortilla as tightly as possible and trim off the ends (chef's perks!).
If you are making these in advance, stop here! Wrap each roll in plastic wrap and store in the fridge until needed. When you're ready, simply cut each roll into 8 slices and present them on a platter!
