Firecracker Salmon Rolls

Celebrating Fourth of July with Family and Friends


 How do family and friends celebrate the Fourth of July? By pulling out all the stops to show their patriotism!
We have some amazing recipes this week to spice up your Independence Day bash!

Firecracker Salmon Rolls
  • 1 tsp. canola oil (plus more for brushing dough)
  • 1/2 lb. fresh salmon fillet
  • 1 cup chopped fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded carrot
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. fresh grated ginger
  • 1 tsp. chili garlic paste (in the Asian section), or to taste
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Phyllo Dough
Heat 1 tsp. oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat.  Cook spinach, carrots, scallions, garlic and ginger until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.  Stir in chili paste.  Set aside.


Cut salmon into 1 x 3-inch strips.  Heat oven to 375 degrees F.  Cut stack of phyllo sheets crosswise in half.  Cover with a damp paper towel while you are working with them to prevent them from drying out.  Place 1 half sheet phyllo dough on a flat surface.  Brush with a small amount of oil.  Top with second half sheet of phyllo.  Place about 1 Tbsp. spinach mixture on short end of phyllo;  place salmon on top.


Roll up phyllo into a log and gently twist the ends to make a firecracker shape.  Place on ungreased baking sheet.  Repeat with remaining phyllo and salmon.  Brush firecrackers lightly with oil and bake 18 to 20 minutes or until phyllo is crisp and golden brown.


 I like a sweet and sour dipping sauce for these rolls.  I used "A Taste of Thai" Sweet Red Chili Sauce.  

 Get your party going with these Lemon Drop Jello Shots!


Let the Fireworks Begin!

  1. When I told my husband what you were bringing to the table this week he got so excited and asked if we could make it this week. I already put it on my menu plan and now that I have actually seen the recipe I am even more excited then I was before.
