A little Japan in your Kitchen-Seaweed wrap
I started making these, salmon avocado seaweed wraps, after I had one at my favorite japanese cafe in Greenpoint I thought I'd share since they are really easy to make and quite tasty.
Things you'll need:
Makes 4-5 wraps
-Nori (roasted seaweed wraps not the little snacky ones but the full sheets)
-1 can of salmon
-pinch of salt
-1/4 teaspoon sriacha
-2 tbsp kewpie mayonnaise
-1 ripe haas avocado, sliced into quarters lengthwise
-1 cup of steamed sushi rice
Step 1- cook rice according to package. Let rice cool a little, it should be warm not burning hot.
Step 2- add pinch of salt to salmon
Step 3- slice your avocado into long slices like these. Avocado should be ripe.
Step 4- cut with a pair of scissors your nori into 4in wide strips, leaving them long to roll.
Step 5-mix sriacha and mayo, it should be like peach color when mixed. Also you can adjust spiciness to your taste by adding more or less sriacha.
Step 6- Assemble! lay the Nori on a flat surface, on one end put a good amount of rice, then add your salmon, your spicy mayo next, and lastly a slice of avocado. From the end that's filled with all the goodness, start rolling the steam of the rice will help it all stick together.
Repeat to make more, I usually eat two. You can always refrigerate your ingredients separately and warm the rice up again to have it the next day.
