Salmon Sushi Wrap
Why I Love This Recipe
Roll a sushi wrap as a flavorful way to enjoy salmon with its heart-healthy omega-3s, and fiber-rich brown rice. Mix in crunchy water chestnuts, deep-green spinach and Asian seasonings – then wrap and roll!
Ingredients You'll Need
2 cans (6 ounces) Sockeye or pink salmon, drained, flaked
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
2 cups cooked brown or short-grain rice, cooled
1 can (8 ounces) sliced water chestnuts, drained
1/4 cup chopped green onion
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
2 cups baby spinach leaves*
4 (10-inch) spinach-flavored flour tortillas
In a medium bowl, season salmon with a mixture of lemon juice, ginger, soy sauce and sugar. Combine salmon mixture with rice, water chestnuts, green onion and sesame seeds; toss gently with fork to mix.
Warm the tortillas.** Arrange a layer of spinach leaves on the bottom half of each tortilla, leaving room on the edges. Spread equal portions of the salmon-rice mixture over spinach then top with another layer of spinach leaves. Fold the side and bottom edges of each tortilla toward the middle over the filling, then roll so the tortilla covers the filling.
* Tips: For a typical sushi flavor, use nori strips in place of spinach. Nori are sheets of dried seaweed, found in many Asian stores. Serve with wasabi, if desired.
** To make them more pliable before wrapping, warm tortillas:
• Microwave oven: 10 to 15 seconds on high heat
• Oven: 3 to 5 minutes at 350ºF in aluminum foil
• Stovetop: 15 seconds per side over medium-high heat in a large non-stick skillet
