These Salmon Mousse Cucumber Rolls make a great low carb/keto friendly party appetizer! I’ve also been known to eat these for breakfast as well since smoked salmon is one of my favorite foods! If you’re dairy free I’ve had great luck using an almond based cream cheese alternative like Kite Hill.

Sometimes I’ll add some capers and red onion to the mousse too but this version is classic, simple, and totally delicious.

Can I cut the cuecumber into chunks, hollow out part and pipe in the salmon mousse  and add a sprig of dill?


Absolutely, that's a great way to serve it too!


I am eager to make the Smoked Salmon Cucumber Rolls...Thanks


Do you cook the smoked salmon 1st or it is raw?


Hi Carol, it is "raw" smoked salmon slices (the thin slices, not fillets).
