Salmon Avocado Nori Wraps
makes 4 wraps
recipe slightly adapted from Simple Beautiful Food
- 2 (4 oz). fillets of salmon (skin on)
- Salt & black pepper
- a drizzle of toasted sesame oil
- 4 sheets nori
- 2 cups warm brown rice
- 2 green onions, thinly sliced (both white & green parts)
- 1 avocado, thinly sliced (I had two small avocados)
- 2 tablespoons chopped pickled ginger
- a handful with coarsely chopped cilantro (or mint)
- sriracha for topping
Preheat oven to 450F
Place salmon skin-side down on a sheet pan lined with aluminum foil. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper and drizzle with toasted sesame oil. Roast for about 10 minutes or until the tip of a pairing knife can be inserted without any resistance. Let rest until cool to touch. Using a fork, flake the salmon so it separates from the skin.
To crisp skin (if using)
Turn oven to Broil. Peel the skin off the salmon. Place back on the aluminum foil-lined baking sheet and broil for about 3 minutes, flip over and broil for another minute until salmon skin is crispy and nicely browned.
Assemble the wraps:
Place each sheet of nori on a flat surface. Spread half of each sheet with brown rice, followed by salmon (and salmon skin if using!), a few slices of avocado, pickled ginger, green onions, chopped fresh mint or cilantro and carefully wrap the nori around the filling, securing with a little bit of water. Serve immediately with a small bowl of soy sauce for dipping.
