Recipe Summary

2 Asparagus and Prosciutto or 2 Smoked Salmon and Scallion Rollups (about 12 pieces of crepe "sushi")


Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Lay crepe flat on a clean work surface. In a bowl, stir together cream cheese, lemon zest, and juice; season with salt and pepper. Spread evenly to edges of crepe. Cut crepe in half.

  • Blanch asparagus in generously salted boiling water until crisp tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to an ice water bath until cold; drain and pat dry. Top each crepe half with 2 slices prosciutto and 2 blanched asparagus spears, laying them parallel to long, cut side of crepe, leaving a 1/2-inch border at cut edges.

  • Starting at rounded ends, tightly roll each half to enclose filling, gently pressing long, cut end to adhere. To serve, trim ends and cut crosswise into approximate 1-inch pieces of "sushi."

  • For salmon variation, sprinkle chopped scallions over cream cheese, replace prosciutto with smoked salmon, and omit asparagus.
