Using a vegetable peeler, or a mandolin, slice the cucumber into thin strips lengthwise. If you get to the seeds, rotate the cucumber and begin slicing from another side. Discard the outermost "peel" layer. Continue until you have 12 slices ~ 1-2" wide.
Lay the cucumber strips out onto a cutting board and gently pat them with a paper towel to remove excess moisture.
In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese and the bagel seasoning.
Spread about 1 to 2 tbsp of the cream cheese mixture, evenly onto the cucumber strips. Then, top with a thin layer of smoked salmon, leaving about 1 1/2" at the end without salmon.
Gently roll the cucumbers lengthwise. Sprinkle with additional seasoning and Enjoy!
