What Are Sushi Roll-Ups?

Sushi roll-ups are whole, uncut maki rolls. It's a fun and easy way to make sushi, and it's eaten like a wrap or burrito!

What Do I Need to Make Sushi Roll-Ups?

You will need a sushi rolling mat to roll them up. If you don't have a sushi rolling mat, you can use plastic wrap, a clean lint-free dish towel or parchment paper.

Is the Salmon Raw or Cooked?

We use canned salmon, which is already cooked. Good-quality canned salmon is a valuable pantry staple and a practical way to include protein and omega-3 fatty acids in your diet.

How to Serve Spicy Salmon Sushi Roll-Ups

Serve the rolls immediately, with lime wedges, pickled ginger, wasabi and reduced-sodium tamari. You can also serve up these ingredients as a rice bowl, with crushed nori sprinkled over top.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Mix salmon, mayonnaise, Sriracha to taste and vinegar in a small bowl.

  • Fill a small bowl with water. Place 1 nori sheet on a sushi rolling mat or piece of plastic wrap, with a long end facing you. With wet fingertips, cover the bottom half of the nori with 1/3 cup rice, then sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds. Working 2 inches from the bottom of the roll, top with one-sixth each of the salmon mixture, cucumbers, carrot, scallions, cilantro and avocado. Using the mat to help you, roll up the nori, tucking the ingredients tightly as you work. Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Serve the rolls immediately, with lime wedges, pickled ginger, wasabi and tamari, if desired.
