Crispy golden brown tortilla rolls stuffed with juicy cilantro lime salmon and plenty of melted cheese that are perfect just by themselves or smothered in all the fix ins!

  • 1 pound cilantro salmon, cooked and flaked

  3. Heat the oil in a large skillet, working in batches add the rolls and cook until golden brown and crispy on all sides, about 4-6 minutes, and set aside on paper towels.
  4. Enjoy while warm with salsa verde, sour cream and guacamole for dipping or make a meal out of it and serve them on a bed of lettuce topped withguacamole, pico de gallo, crumbled queso fresco and hot sauce!
