I’ve got a fun recipe for you today that is packed with protein and brain-healthy omega-3 fatty acids!
What makes this recipe fun, you ask? You can eat it with your fingers – that automatically puts it into the fun category, am I right?
These sushi-inspired wraps make a delicious lunch or snack. Plus, this recipe can be easily changed up to suit your mood, appetite, or what you have on hand.
I’ve included riced-veggies to keep it lighter and boost your vegetable intake. You can find them in the freezer or produce section of most grocery stores.
NOTE: If you’re using riced raw veggies, make sure you cook & cool them first – you can steam them in the microwave by placing them in a covered dish with a few splashes of water, and cooking for 3-4 minutes.
If you want a heartier meal, try using cooked brown or jasmine rice.
And if you don’t want to make a wrap, this recipe can easily become a salad with the addition of extra greens.
Sushi-inspired salmon roll-ups
(Makes 4 servings)
● 2 x 6 oz (170 g) cans salmon, drained and flaked
● ⅓ cup (65 g) mayonnaise made with olive or avocado oil
● 1 Tbsp of sriracha or your favorite hot sauce
● 1 green onion, chopped
● 3 cups (340 g) riced veggies, cooked
● 2 Tbsp rice vinegar
● 4 10-inch wraps (whole grain or gluten-free)
● 3 big handfuls of peppery greens like watercress or arugula
● 1 avocado, halved, cored, and cut into 16 slices
● 1 carrot, cut into matchsticks
● Coconut aminos for dipping (optional)
In a small bowl, combine the cooked and cooled riced veggies with the vinegar. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, mix the salmon, mayo, hot sauce, and green onions.
Layout the four wraps and spread one-fourth of the salmon mixture over each one. Top each with ¾ cup riced veggies, one-fourth each of the greens and carrot sticks, and 4 slices of the avocado.
Roll up each wrap and cut into quarters. If you want extra flavor, serve with coconut aminos for dipping.
