- 5 Sheets of Nori (I found these in the asian food section of Walmart, so you can probably find them anywhere!)
- 1 4 oz salmon filet, cooked and cooled
- Sriracha (to taste, I used about 2 tsp)
- 2 tsp Mayo (optional)
- Veggies of choice (I used alfalfa sprouts)
I almost feel guilty posting this as a recipe. But if you are anything like me, you get bored with healthy foods and then you become completely uninspired by eating healthy and then you end up eating half a bag of oreos. (Just me? Oh ok cool. Ignore this)
Anyway, I went to the grocery store way too hungry and ended up grabbing some nori and salmon. I just wanted something easy, yummy, healthy, and that didn’t suck. This was it.
I baked the single salmon filet in the oven with just a pinch of salt. I then flaked it up and let it cool in the fridge before adding some Sriracha and mayo. The mayo can totally be taken out, or even subbed for something else like greek yogurt.
I then cut the nori sheets in half, added the sprouts (avocado or cream cheese or cucumber would be equally awesome here!) then topped it with the salmon.
So easy. It totally cured my craving for sushi (yes, I realize it’s not raw fish…but the flavor is the same) and by eliminating the rice this is super low calorie. I had 5 and was totally satisfied. It’s a great easy lunch the whip together. I totally recommend it and am so glad I randomly picked up nori!
Let me know in the comments below if you make these and how you make them your own! Also, what healthy meals have you been making lately? I want to cheat off your meal plan!
