Nori Rolls (Dairy and Gluten Free)

Nori is an edible type of seaweed which has been dried into a square sheet for sushi, salads and other rolls.  This seaweed is full nutrients such as vitamin A, B, C, iron, calcium, magnesium, zinc, folic acid, iodine, protein, fibre and much more.   Nori sheets can be found in the Asian section of most grocery stores.

* These are the ingredients I used, however they can be adapted using your own preference of vegetables and meats.  The rice should be cooked ahead of time to allow for cooling time.

Ingredients (3-4 people)

  • 1 1/2 cups short white grain rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 ripe avocados * 
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 yellow pepper
  • 1/2 red pepper
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1 salmon fillet or 1 can of salmon
  • 1 small bowl of water 
  1. Soak rice for one hour in water then cook until boiling.  Turn off heat and let sit for 10 minutes.  Finally ensure that the rice is chilled.
  2. Slice 1 avocado, both peppers and cucumber into thin long slices.
  3. Take remaining avocado and mash together with salmon and lime juice.
  4. Using a bamboo mat or parchment paper, lay one Nori sheet on top and lightly sprinkle with water.
  5. With wet hands spread 1/4 cup of rice onto the bottom half of sheet.  Lay 2 tablespoons of salmon mixture in a strip across the rice.   Place 1-2 strips of vegetables on top of the salmon.
  6. Roll the nori roll tightly from the bottom up using the mat or parchment paper to make a tight roll.  Seal the end of the roll by wetting the last 1/2 inch of the nori sheet and continuing to roll.  Slice with a sharp knife making 1 inch slices.

* 1 avocado will be used to mash with the salmon however it can be replaced with mayonnaise or other sauces
