Honestly, there are not a lot of foods that I miss from the days before I decided to start a Paleo diet. I’ve been able to recreate so many of my favorite recipes into Paleo versions that I never felt deprived.
However, there is one food that I truly missed, and that was sushi.
But now, I created the perfect recipe that has all of the taste of my favorite salmon roll but without any rice. And it’s absolutely delicious. Plus, you don’t have to cook it, which makes it the perfect meal on a hot day.
And since the recipe doesn’t have sushi rice, it’s low carb as well.
I’m so happy to share it with you so you can enjoy sushi while on a Paleo diet.
Recipe Substitutions and Preparation Tips
While this recipe is absolutely delicious as it is, there are some ingredients that can be substituted to suit your taste and the ingredients you might already have.
My biggest tip is to make extra sauce because it is so delicious. However, you can always just use plain coconut aminos instead.
My most important tip if you are using raw salmon is to make sure that it is sushi-grade, which means it is the highest quality salmon the grocery store has to offer.
And be sure to smell the salmon to make sure it doesn’t have a fishy smell to it. Also, plan to use the raw fish as soon as possible after you purchase it.
But if you really want a sushi roll, then my Paleo Sushi recipe is for you, which uses avocado instead of sushi rice. You’ll get all of the flavor of sushi but without any of the grains or carbs from sushi rice.
