Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Spoon 2 tablespoons of the grated cheese onto a baking sheet. (A silicone line baking sheet works best for this)  Pat the cheese down with your fingers to make a round of about 4 inches. Repeat this process 3 more time with the remaining cheese to form 4 rounds.  Leave at least ½ inch between rounds. Bake until the rounds are almost done, about 3 minutes. In a small bowl combine the onion, garlic, sesame seeds and poppy seeds.  Top each cheese round with ¼ of this mixture. Return baking sheet to oven and bake until the cheese rounds are golden and crisp, about 5 minutes. Cool the crisps before eating.

Place a large sheet of plastic wrap on a work surface.  Arrange the slices of salmon in an overlapping fashion on the plastic wrap so that you create a rectangle approximately 6-inches wide by 12-inches long.  The longest side should be facing you. Spread the cream cheese gently over the salmon trying not to move any of the salmon pieces. Lay the cucumber sticks along one side of the rectangle , leaving about ½ inch margin from the edge.  Use the plastic wrap as a guide to roll the salmon up tightly around the cucumber sticks. Refrigerate the salmon roll until firm, at least 30 minutes. Use a sharp knife to cut the salmon roll into 16 slices. Sprinkle the red onion and capers over to salmon pinwheels and serve with the lemon slices.
