If you can make a sandwich, you can make these rolls. And like a sandwich, the filling options are endless. Salmon pairs well with the seaweed. So, when baking salmon for a meal, I simply bake a few extra fillets for use the next day. Or, skip the salmon for a vegetarian option. Get creative! The ingredients used here are simply examples to get your ideas rolling. Just be sure all fillings are vegetables are thinly sliced and in bite-size pieces.
Ingredients (per roll)
- 2 sheets nori wraps
- 3 tablespoons Silky Avocado Sauce (or thinly sliced or mashed avocados)
- Vegetables: grated carrot, thinly sliced cabbage, salad greens, cilantro, red onion
- 1/2 fillet baked wild salmon (or 2-3 ounces canned wild salmon)
- Braggs Amino Acids (soy sauce or Wheat-free tamari soy-GF)
(Paleo option: coconut amino acids)
- Optional: Lime juice and/or Chili oil for drizzling the top layer
- Place 2 sheets of nori wraps on a cutting board, one on top of the other.
- Spread avocado sauce to thinly cover the sheets.
- Spread thinly sliced vegetables over the avocado sauce layer.
- Break up salmon into bite-size pieces and distribute across the top of the vegetables.
- Sprinkle or spray the top with the amino acids, wheat-free tamari, or soy sauce.
- Optional: Top with a light drizzle of chili oil or lime juice to taste.
- Roll up like a burrito. Apply light pressure across the finished end, as if sealing an envelope.
- Enjoy! Nori is a healthy, low-carb “wrap”. But, the finished product will become soggy in time from the moisture in the avocado sauce.
- Nori sheets may be found in the Asian section of most grocers and health food stores.
- Stored in an airtight container, left-over sheets will last for weeks, if not months.
- To make wraps ahead of time, simply layer the Nori rolls first with a layer of vegetables and only add sauce or oils at the end, so the moisture stays in the middle after everything is rolled up. Wetting the first 1/2 inch of the “finishing end” before rolling will help everything stay together after it is rolled up.
- Other ways to use up your Nori wraps? I use the same assembly process with hummus, greens and leftover roasted chicken.
