Sushi always looks pretty, however not everyone is a fan of raw fish. This mock sushi dish looks just as tasty as the real thing, but features cooked salmon, avocado, carrots, zucchini, rice and a scallion garnish. Pair it with a delicious wasabi infused low sodium soy sauce and some ginger for a healthful treat.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 35°. Place salmon in tinfoil boats. Place butter and pads a top salmon and squeeze the juice from the lemon wedge on salmon and butter. Bake until salmon is tender and flaky.
  2. Slice avocado, zucchini and carrot into thin strips.
  3. Prepare rice as directed and arrange a small spoonful of rice on your plates, four to a plate. Top rice with carrot and avocado slices.
  4. When salmon has finished cooking break apart into bite-sized pieces and place each atop avocado. Using only the ends of the green onion, place slivers of the onion atop each sushi bite.
  5. Mix powdered wasabi with 1 teaspoon of water until it forms a paste. Put a pinch of the wasabi on each plate and put a teaspoon or so of low-sodium soy sauce into small cups to garnish sushi bites, along with a pinch of pickled ginger on the plate. Serve as soon as possible to prevent the avocado from browning. (Note: you can also mix the wasabi paste with the soy sauce, but wasabi is a strong flavor. Your diners may prefer to accent their bites according to their own individual taste buds.)
