    Personal note: I often use a small zip lock bag to pipe the filling in ,just cut off a small end of a corner of the bag and pipe the filling in that way .....I buy the smoked salmon in the seafood area where they keep the imatation crab meat....For a large group I double or triple this recipe...I have use chopped shrimp or chopped inmation crab meat for this recipe instead of the salmon
