Spinach Roulade with Smoked Salmon 菠菜熏三文鱼肉卷

'I am strong to the finich, cause I eat my spinach. I'm Popeye the sailor man...'

Turns out, Popeye is right, spinach does make you stronger, and it has been proven by modern science. Researchers at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm conducted a study and found that nitrate, a natural occurring substance in spinach, can help to tone up muscle. The intake of nitrate prompted the increase of two proteins found in muscles, which are responsible for muscle contraction. The result? Stronger contraction of muscle. So, more spinach = stronger, mystery solved. 

This roulade contains not only the goodness of spinach, but also fish, egg, and cream cheese. It taste good, it is vibrant in color, and is not difficult to make either. You can make it in advance and let it sitting in the fridge, chilling out while waiting for you to devour it. It makes an convenient make-ahead lunch if you are on diet too!
