  1. To make tomato butter, cut tomatoes in half lengthwise and place on a lightly greased baking tray.  Sprinkle with salt and bake at  180°C/350°F/Gas 4 for 30 minutes or until tomatoes are very soft.  Set aside to cool slightly.  Place warm tomatoes and butter in a food processor or blender and process until smooth.
  2. Place cream cheese, dill, lime juice, lime rind and black pepper to taste in a food processor or blender and process until smooth.
  3. Cut salmon into four 3 cm/1 1/4 in wide strips.  Spread each strip with some of the cream cheese mixture, roll up and secure with wooden toothpicks.  Place rolls on a lightly greased baking tray, cover and bake for 15 minutes or until salmon is cooked.
  4. To serve, divide watercress between serving plates, top with salmon rolls.  Serve immediately, drizzled with tomato butter.

This is good for an easy dinner party starter that is sure to impress your guests.  The rolls can be prepared several hours in advance, covered and refrigerated until ready to cook.
