Healthy Sushi with Smoked Salmon and Cucumber Recipes

Healthy sushi with smoked salmon & cucumber recipes

Smoked salmon makes a good ingredient in sushi because of its texture. You can buy a piece of salmon fillet and slice it yourself if you want thicker slices.


  • 1/2 quantity freshly cooked sushi rice

  • 2 tbsp Japanese mayonnaise

  • 200 g/7 oz smoked salmon

  • 1/2 cucumber, peeled and cut into very thin slices

To serve

  • Pickled ginger

  • Wasabi paste

  1. Oil an oshi waku or terrine tin (preferably with drop-down sides) and line it with a piece of Clingfilm so that the Clingfilm hangs over the edges. This helps to pull the sushi out afterwards.

  2. Pack the tin 3 cm/11/4 inches full with the rice. Spread a layer of mayonnaise on top of the rice.

  3. Arrange the smoked salmon and cucumber in diagonal strips on top of the rice, doubling up the smoked salmon layers if you have enough so that the topping is nice and thick. Cover the top of the rice with a strip of Clingfilm, put another terrine tin on top and add something heavy, such as a few tins of tomatoes, to weight it.

  4. Chill the sushi for 15 minutes, take off the tin and weights and pull out the sushi. Cut the sushi into 8-so pieces with a wet, sharp knife. Serve this healthy sushi with smoked salmon and cucumber recipes with pickled ginger and wasabi paste.
