Sugar-Free Smoked Salmon Sushi Rolls

  • Sushi Making Kit
  • Nori sheets
  • Rice Vinegar
  • Wasabi
  • Epicure Steamer
  • 2 cups cooked cauliflower rice or brown rice*
  • ¼ cup rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon gentle sweet
  • 1 teaspoon mineral salt
  • 2 sheets nori (dry seaweed)
  • 8 ounces smoked salmon*^ (thinly sliced)
  • 2 baby cucumbers (sliced)
  • 1 avocado (peeled and sliced**)
  • 1 carrot (thinly sliced)
  • 1 tablespoon cream cheese or dairy-free cream cheese (*optional, omit for an E meal)

Prepare Cauliflower Rice or Brown Rice:

  1. Cook 2 cups of cauliflower rice or brown rice according to package instructions. I use my Epicure steamer to prepare cauliflower rice in just minutes in the microwave.*

Prepare Fillings:

  1. Cut the smoked salmon*^ into small slices. Slice the avocado, baby cucumbers, and carrot into thin strips.

Assemble Sushi:

  1. Lay a sheet of nori on a bamboo sushi mat with the lines on the seaweed aligned with the lines on the mat. Spread about 1 cup of the cauliflower rice or brown rice mixture evenly over the nori, leaving the top 1 inch untouched.

Add Fillings:

  1. Arrange the baby cucumbers, carrot, avocado, smoked salmon, and cream cheese in a line about 2 inches from the bottom of the nori sheet. Ensure the fillings are no more than 1.5 to 2 inches wide.

Roll Sushi:

  1. Dip your fingers in water and moisten the top of the nori seaweed. Using the bamboo mat, begin rolling the sushi tightly, starting from the bottom edge. Moisten the top edge with water to seal the roll.

Slice and Serve:

  1. Transfer the sushi roll to a cutting board. Using a sharp knife, slice the roll into 8 pieces. To achieve clean cuts, hold the knife under cold water between slices. Repeat until all sushi is sliced.

Enjoy:

  1. Serve the sushi with soy sauce or coconut aminos for dipping. Optionally, add wasabi and sugar-free pickled ginger for extra flavor. Enjoy your delicious sugar-free smoked salmon sushi rolls, suitable for THM S, E, or FP meals!

*Note: Brown rice will make this a trim healthy E meal. Use cauliflower rice to make if S is FP.
*^ I use wild-caught smoked salmon; it’s leaner.
**For fuel pull sushi, be sure to choose only 5 grams of fat. You can use thin slices of avocado or opt to leave if out for a bigger portion size of fp sushi.
