I love sushi. No really; I have an uncommon amount of love for this food. I love the technique, the quality, the beauty, the whole thing. That said, my wallet does not share my love for this gorgeous food. Every once in a while I’ll go all out and try to make my own sushi at home but I’ve been looking for something simpler that gives me all the enjoyment of sushi at a fraction of the price and time-enter poke. These wraps come together in minutes, are made from healthy, fresh ingredients and can be a special lunch or appetizer that you (yes, you!) can make at home.
- 4 ounces sushi-grade salmon
- 1 avocado diced to the same with as a salmon
- 3 green onions sliced fine
- 1/4 red onion, diced fine
- 1/6 cup gluten free soy sauce or Braggs amino acid
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
- 1 teaspoon Sriracha
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
- sesame seeds to finish
- butter lettuce to wrap
- Remove salmon from the skin and dice into 1/4 inch cubes.
- Combine salmon, avocado, red onion and green onion in a mixing bowl and toss gently.
- In a small mixing bowl combine soy sauce through rice wine vinegar and stir well to combine.
- Toss the salmon mixture with the soy sauce mixture and allow to marinate, covered in the fridge, for at least a half an hour.
- Evenly divide your salmon poke between butter lettuce leaves and top with sesame seeds. Enjoy!
