Smoked salmon sushi style

If looking for salmon recipes, this recipe with smoked salmon is worth a go.  This salmon recipe is served sushi style with sushi dressing and sushi rice.

Ingredients – Serves 4

  • Approx 250g sliced smoked salmon
  • 125g cooked sushi rice
  • 2 or 3 sheets of roasted seaweed
  • Sushi dressing
  • 1 lemon

Getting everything ready

  1. Cut the lemon into neat wedges, removing any pips.
  2. Make the sushi dressing (half is for the rice and half is for garnish).
  3. Cook the sushi rice (remember to use it while it is still warm).
  4. Cut any garnish you may wish to use, e.g. thin pieces of pepper.


  1. Place a sheet of seaweed into a bamboo mat.  Next, lay the thin slices of smoked salmon onto the seaweed.  Neatly spread the sushi rice over two-thirds of the salmon and seaweed.
  2. Slowly and carefully begin to roll the sushi, pulling the bamboo mat towards you and tucking in the top seaweed sheet to make a roll.
  3. Dampen the last strip of seaweed with cold water and complete your roll.  Remove from the bamboo mat and wrap in cling film.
  4. Roll the smoked salmon into a tight sausage shape and place in the fridge to chill for about 1 hour.
  5. Remove the smoked salmon sushi from the fridge and unwrap it from the cling film.  Place the smoked salmon sushi onto a chopping board and, using a sharp knife, carefully cut the roll into slices (about 6 to 8 slices per roll, depending on the thickness you require).
  6. Place the slices of smoked salmon sushi neatly on a place and garnish each slice if you wish.  Drizzle over with the remaining sushi dressing and serve with a wedge of lemon.
