Paleo Sushi

So, a couple months ago I was having the worst cravings ever for salmon.  I’m not sure why but I could not walk past it in the grocery store without buying it, stocking up on it, and ordering it off every menu at restaurants.  I must have had my craving satisfied; however, I never forgot about the amazing sushi roll that I came up with!  I had it again last night and thought that I had to share it with everyone.;)

Ingredients: (1 roll)

  • 1/2 an avocado, mashed
  • 1 nori sheet
  • a few strips smoked salmon
  • a few slices of mango
  • a green onion
  • a few sliced of fermented jalapeno, diced


Spread the mashed avocado on the nori sheet leaving about an inch at one end without any.  At the edge (the one with avocado) lay down the smoked salmon, then the green onion, mango, and sprinkles of jalapeno.  Begin to roll the sheet up into a cylinder and wet the edge without avocado on it in order to make it stick.  Done.  I eat it like a burrito but feel free to cut into bite size pieces like they do at the restaurant.  I tried that once and I just ended up smashing it and everything fell out. ;(  You can use any variation of ingredients!  Sashimi grade tuna, cooked shrimp, cucumber, bell pepper, jicama, etc.  I just love smoked salmon and avocado!

BTW-I thought I came up with this amazing idea….until you search it on the internet and everyone is doing it!  My roll is the best though….probably because of my homemade fermented jalapenos!
