Why This Recipe Works
This Smoked Salmon Pinwheels recipe combines smoked salmon and its traditional accompaniments into an attractive pinwheel canapé. We bought smoked salmon for this recipe, not lox; the latter has a milder, much saltier flavor. Blending butter and cream cheese for the base of the filling makes the pinwheels firm enough to be cleanly sliced. The briny bite of capers and the tartness of sour cream and lemon juice cut through and accent the richness of the smoked salmon.
