Smoked salmon Rolls wrapped in wild Wakame is a lovely way to enjoy this naturally crunchy seaweed harvested from the pristine waters of new Zealand. This is a fantastic alternative to sushi for people on a paleo diet or people just wanting to reduce carbs! Many variations would work equally well with the advantage that the seaweed is totally unprocessed.
Prep time 20 minutes
Wild harvested Wakame leaves *
Cream cheese or non-dairy alternative like cashew cream
Smoked salmon slices
Fresh dill sprigs
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
- Soak the Wakame leaves in tepid water for 5 minutes.
- Cut the rehydrated Wakame in lengths of 6-8 cm.
- On each piece of seaweed, lay thin slices of smoked garnish with capers & fresh dill.
- Make a small roll and serve with a wedge of lemon.
Tip: One leaf may make as many as 4-5 rolls – add bits that are not wide enough to roll to soups, stir-fry or salads. This recipe won’t work with farmed wakame leaves as they are pre-chopped and too small to roll.
