Salmon Asparagus Wraps


6 thin fresh asparagus spears
1/4 cup tub-style fat-free cream cheese
1 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
1 tablespoon lemon juice
  Dash cayenne pepper
3 ounces salmon, broiled
2 tablespoons snipped fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried basil, crushed
2 6- to 7-inch whole wheat flour tortillas
1/4 of a red sweet pepper, cut into thin bite-size strips

1. Snap off and discard woody bases from asparagus. In a covered large saucepan, cook asparagus spears in a small amount of boiling lightly salted water for 3 to 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain and plunge into ice water to cool quickly. Drain again; pat dry with paper towels.

2. In a small bowl, stir together cream cheese, lemon peel, lemon juice, and cayenne pepper. Fold in flaked salmon and basil. Spread on tortillas. For wraps, arrange 3 of the asparagus spears and half of the sweet pepper strips atop salmon mixture on each tortilla. Roll up tortillas. If necessary, secure with toothpicks. Wrap in plastic wrap. Chill overnight.

3. For each serving, transport one of the wraps in an insulated lunch box with an ice pack. Store wraps in the refrigerator until ready to eat. Makes 2 servings.

One thought on “Salmon Asparagus Wraps”

  1. Hello, thanks so much for your salmon tortilla recipe – it looks and sounds fantastic. Not sure if you ever tried The La Tortilla Factory Low Carb/High Fiber Tortillas? My husband and I are on a low calorie diet and have been for 4 years. Therefore we are always looking for healthy alternatives, low calorie foods and new recipes.

    We have been faithful customers (actually most days we have at least 2 of these wraps) of The La Tortilla Factory Low Carb/High Fiber Tortillas. These tortillas are only 80 Calories per wrap and are cholesterol-free, contain no saturated fats, trans fat or hydrogenated oils. Therefore they are perfect for the health conscious and dieters (especially people who are following a low carbohydrate, low calorie and lower glycemic index foods – such as diabetics).

    We use the wraps for all of our meals – breakfast (egg burrito), lunch (all types of fruit and veggie wraps) and dinner (pizzas) although can be also used for snacks (you just have to get creative).

    If you are interested, we list one of our favorite recipes (Italian Pizza) and will continue to list more on our site.

    Thanks again for sharing your recipe and look forward to reading more! 🙂
