"One of my favorite recipes. Perfect for lunch, parties, or a light dinner. When I see smoked salmon on sale ... this is one of the first things I think of. There is a bit of work to prepare; but, it isn't difficult - and, really worth it. Again, this are the amounts I use; but, you can customize them to your tastes."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Cucumber ... After cutting the cucumber into matchsticks; I like to lightly salt and lay onto a paper towel. This will draw out a lot of the moisture. It only takes 5-10 minutes. Then, lightly rinse, lay back on a clean paper towel; and pat dry before using them in the spring roll. Then, after they are dry; add to a bowl with the radish. Note: You can also use a English or seedless cucumber; but, it's just as easy to scoop out the seeds of a regular cucumber. Both work equally as well.

Step 2

Asparagus ... For this recipe - I do NOT like too thick of spears. I prefer an average size spear, with the ends trimmed. Even the pencil thin asparagus will work in this recipe; but, the thicker spears just don't work as well.

Step 3

Blanch the asparagus in a saute pan or pot of lightly boiling water for 1-2 minutes, not any longer. Once they are blanched; immediately transfer to a bowl of ice water; which stops the cooking process, and retains the bright green color. Once they are cool; transfer to a plate lined with a paper towel to dry.

Step 4

Avocado ... Fine dice the avocado, and squeeze the fresh lime juice over the avocado. Then, add all the fresh herbs, scallions, and a pinch of salt and pepper; and, toss to combine. Do NOT over mix; you don't want to break up the avocado. The lime will prevent the avocado from browning. Salmon is salty; and, the sauce has soy as well - so go easy, I season lightly.

Step 5

Sauce ... Add all the ingredients to a small bowl and mix. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Step 6

Rolls ... Have everything ready to wrap. The cucumber/radish mix, asparagus, avocado/herbs, and the salmon. And, have a plate where you can put all your rolls.

Step 7

Remember, you are making 12-14 rolls; so divide everything out, so you don't add to much to each one. TIP: You are making 12 wraps - so, to make it easy; place 4 paper plates on the counter. 1 - count out your asparagus spears, so you know how many per roll. 2 - Make small piles of the cucumber/radish mix, 3 - same with the avocado mix; and, 4 - the same with the salmon too. This is an easy way to make sure, each roll gets the same amount. It only takes a minute; and the plates are disposable. You could also use a piece of foil or parchment too. It's just makes it so much easier to portion out.

Step 8

Roll ... Add warm water to a pie plate, so you can easily dip your rice wraps. Dip each wrap for a couple of seconds until it becomes soft. Lay it flat on a cutting board. Add the salmon to the bottom 1/3 of the wrap. Top with asparagus spears (alternating the tips from right to left), then the avocado/herbs; and, finish with the cucumber/radish mix.

Step 9

Folding ... Two (2) methods. I like to fold the bottom over, then fold in the sides and roll. Another method is to fold over the sides; then, fold over the bottom, and roll. Both methods work. Once the wraps are made. They are best served immediately. Some people will cover tightly with plastic wrap, and refrigerate up to 1 hour. I really prefer to serve them right after they are made.

Step 10

Serve and ENJOY! ... Add a bowl of the dipping sauce to a platter with the rolls; and garnish with scallions! Makes a great lunch/brunch, light dinner; or, appetizers. Easy, fresh, and delicious. Serve these with a bowl of soup for a light dinner.
