Paleo Sushi / Smoked Salmon Nori Rolls

paleo sushi

Paleo sushi? Yes you heard correctly!

Hubby and I are huge fans of Japanese food, and he bought me a very comprehensive sushi making kit a few years back. Once I realised how easy it was to make my own I quickly became hooked and started creating all sorts of random concoctions.

Our girls have both eaten it since they were little, and it’s one of our allergy-friendly back up lunches when we’re out and about. Now that we’re grain free I make sushi without rice, and have to say I enjoy it even more.

Ingredients for two rolls of paleo sushi

100g smoked salmon, chopped up small (or you could buy a packet of finely chopped off-cuts)
half a large avocado, cut into thin strips
2 inch chunk of cucumber, peeled and diced small
2 sheets of nori


– You’ll need a large chopping board, and very sharp knife

– place a sheet of nori on your chopping board

– spread half of your smoked salmon over the top, then sprinkle over half the cucumber. Leave a 1cm gap around all edges

– on the left hand side place a few strips of avocado. I’ve also added some grated beetroot for colour, but it’s purely optional

– wet your hands a little so they are damp, and tightly roll your wrap from left to right

– with your super sharp knife slice your roll into 6-8 pieces and enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. It’s so much easier than it looks and sounds, especially if you leave out the rice ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love this quote – it took me a long time to realise that i had to look after myself above all and everyone else. This way I’m able to be the very best mum and wife possible xx

  2. These are great, and once you remove the faff of cooking the rice they take as long to make as a sandwich would. Can’t really argue with that ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I’m always so impressed by people who make sushi as I’ve never tried, but it does look simple! Something I’d love to make with the kids as they’re always more adventurous with their food when they’ve had a hand in it. They quite like sushi actually, and this looks good! (BTW love your Audre Lorde quote, one of my fave poets) x

  4. Sounds perfect. I love sushi!! So delicious. I will have to try these out as I have never made my own sushi! Free from is always great in this house of allergies. #tastytuesdays

  5. They are so good for lunchboxes, and as you know really easy once you know how to make sushi. Completely free from too, which is a nice bonus xx

  6. Sushi is yummy! Your post reminds me that I have not actually made the delicious little rolls in a couple of years, and they would be perfect for my little allergy baby! Just like you mentioned, it would be great for lunchboxes as well. Must make some again soon! x Mel
