Smoked Salmon Avocado Sushi Roll
Sushi cravings while on the keto diet are a real challenge. While sashimi is still fair game, getting the experience of a sushi roll without rice is often difficult at most restaurants. Make your own with this simple recipe that has all the flavors of your favorite sushi. Serve with pickled ginger and low-carb soy sauce.
14 ounces smoked salmon
1 tablespoon wasabi paste (optional)
¾ cup cream cheese, at room temperature
½ avocado, sliced
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
Directions Preparing:15 minCooking:20 min
Step 1On a cutting board, lay out a large piece of plastic wrap.
Step 2Place the salmon pieces on the plastic wrap, overlapping, to create a large rectangle 6 to 7 inches long and 4 inches wide.
Step 3In a small bowl, mix together the wasabi paste (if using) and the cream cheese.
Step 4Spread the cream cheese evenly over the entire smoked salmon rectangle.
Step 5Arrange the avocado over the cream cheese, in the center of the rectangle.
Step 6Grabbing the plastic wrap at one end, lift and carefully begin to roll the salmon. Hold the plastic wrap tightly over the roll as you go to apply pressure to hold it together.
Step 7Unwrap the plastic wrap from the sushi roll.
Step 8Cover the sushi roll in sesame seeds, patting them into the outer layer.
Step 9Refrigerate the roll for 15 to 20 minutes.
Step 10With a very sharp knife, slice into pieces and serve.
