Smoked Salmon Involtini with Guacamole

  • SERVINGS:
  1. 3 medium scallions, white and tender green parts only
  2. 2 medium garlic cloves, unpeeled
  3. 1 jalapeño, seeded and quartered lengthwise
  4. 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  5. 3 Hass avocados, halved and pitted
  6. 1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro leaves
  7. 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  8. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  9. 1 pound cream cheese
  10. 2 teaspoons jalapeño hot sauce
  11. 2 pounds smoked salmon
  12. Mini toasts
  1. Preheat a grill pan. In a small bowl, toss the scallions, garlic and jalapeño with the vegetable oil. Grill over moderately high heat, turning occasionally, until charred all over, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a work surface and let cool.
  2. Finely chop the scallions and jalapeño and transfer to a medium bowl. Peel the garlic cloves, mash them to a paste and add them to the bowl. Scoop the avocado flesh into the bowl and coarsely mash with a fork. Fold the cilantro and lime juice into the guacamole, season with salt and pepper.
  3. Fold the guacamole with the cream cheese and jalapeño hot sauce; season with salt and pepper. Overlap the smoked salmon slices in pairs. Trim each pair to a 4-by-6-inch rectangle. Pipe a 1-inch thick strip of the guacamole–cream cheese mixture along one of the 4-inch sides of each pair. Roll the smoked salmon into cylinders, transfer to a tray and freeze for 15 minutes or until firm. Cut into 4 pieces; serve on mini toasts.
