Even though I didn't know it before, I now know that lettuce can be rolled into a cool summery appetiser.
That's why they invented the phrase sex, drugs 'n' lettuce rolls, baby!
Lettuce rolls with smoky red fish
about 200 g garlic flavoured cream cheese
1/2 dl diced tomatoes
1/2 dl pieces of smoked red fish
1 tbsp raisins
- Mix cream cheese with diced tomatoes, smoked fish and raisins.
- Spread the mixture onto lettuce leaves and make them into rolls. Place them into the fridge for a half an hour (I didn't do that, but it will make the filling stiffer).
- Cut the rolls into bite-sized pieces and top with a grape and a raisin.
They actually have this fresh feeling to them, which is unusual for this kind of appetisers. There's just about enough smoky fish flavour that is complemented by the sweetness of the raisins. The grapes are good on the rolls, but I'm wondering if olives would do an even better job. Next time, right?
