This was the first meal I cooked in our new kitchen. We have not finished remodeling yet! So you may notice over time the kitchen looking a bit different as it gets finished up. You may wonder why with our love of cooking the kitchen is not being done first? Well, we also love sitting at a dinner table and having a place to sleep! I got this idea while thinking of different prosciutto recipes to make for our upcoming prosciutto party. I thought, "Why not whip up something quick and tasty tonight while we work on the house?" My sister ended up dropping by to do some laundry so I made a few extra. We had them along with a mixed green salad that had diced prosciutto, pepperoncinis and blue cheese with a glass of Chianti. Dinner was surprisingly filling! Enjoy!

Fold N' Rolls
4 oz Wild Caught Nova Smoked Salmon (cut into 1 inch wide strips)
4 slices prosciutto (sliced in half long ways)
1/2 of a ripe but still firm avocado (cut into eight 1/4 inch slices)
Fresh chives (cut in half)
1/2 of a jalapeno (seeded, Juliane, optional)
Your favorite dressing for dipping (optional)
1/2 fresh lemon (optional)

4 1/2 tsp cream cheese (softened)
1 tsp chives (diced)
1 tsp sweet Vidalia onion (minced)
Dash of fresh crack pepper

Mix stuffing ingredients together in a small dish with a fork and sit to side.

Fold N' Rolls
On a plastic cutting board lay out your 8 strips of Nova salmon. Place a little more than 1/2 tsp of stuffing to one side of salmon slice. Fold salmon slices over stuffing. Lay one slice of avocado over each folded slice of salmon.

Take the fatter end of one of the strips of prosciutto and lay it under the bottom side of one of the folded salmon slices. Wrap the prosciutto at an angle once around the salmon, then place 5-6 halves of chives over the first prosciutto wrap (optionally add a jalapeno sliver here) and finally wrap the prosciutto the rest of the way around the salmon fold. Repeat until all have been completed. (Optionally you can squeeze 1/2 of a lemons juice over the Fold N' Rolls before serving.)

These go well with a side salad with a light red wine for a light but tasty lunch or dinner.

Bon App├ętit!
