My quest to eat more fish continues…
I decided to make these rolls after buying some Regal cold smoked salmon. I had a look on their website to see what I could do with it and came across this recipe for smoked salmon with potato and wasabi mayo, but decided that I’d use rice instead of the potato. It ended up being a bit like sushi, without the nori. Without a doubt, the wasabi mayonnaise really adds a great flavour to these little bites.
These would be a great way to start a party if you’re looking for finger food you can prepare in advance and serve cold. You can easily multiply this recipe to make more! Just note that you will probably have leftover rice at the end.
Cold smoked salmon rice rolls
Makes about 10 rolls
100g cold smoked salmon slices
1/2 C cooked rice (I used white but can be brown if you wish), cooled
1 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 Tbsp Kewpie mayonnaise
1/4-1/2 tsp wasabi paste (depending on how spicy you want it to be)
black sesame seeds
In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise and wasabi. Set aside.
Sprinkle the rice wine vinegar over the rice.
On a flat surface, lay out the salmon slices and cut in half if too long. With wet hands, roll up a heaped tablespoon of the rice and form a kind of cylinder shape. Place on the end of a salmon slice and roll up into a log.
Continue until all the salmon has been used up. Arrange on a plate and put a dollop of the wasabi mayonnaise on top of each. Sprinkle with black sesame seeds. Serve.
