These quinoa nori rolls are a lunch time hit! Serve with tamari for an authentic flavour addition.



100 g, (1/2 cup) white variety, rinsed, drained

Canned pink salmon in water, drained

1 105g can


2 tsp, sushi

Sesame seeds

1 tsp

Chilli sauce

1 tsp, hot

Dried nori seeweed

10 g, 2 toasted sheets

Red capsicum

½ medium, thinly sliced

Lebanese cucumber

¼ medium, cut into thin batons


¼ medium, thinly sliced


  1. Cook the quinoa following packet instructions. Set aside, covered, to steam for 5 minutes. Stir in sushi seasoning and sesame seeds. Set aside to cool.
  2. Combine salmon and chilli sauce in a small bowl. Place 1 nori sheet, lengthways and shiny-side down, on a sushi mat. Using damp fingers, spread half the quinoa mixture over nori, leaving a 5cm border at the far end. Spread half the salmon mixture over centre of quinoa. Top with half the capsicum, cucumber and avocado. Dampen the uncovered part of the nori with wet fingertips. Using the sushi mat, roll firmly to enclose filling. Cut roll into thirds.
  3. Repeat with remaining nori sheet, quinoa mixture, salmon mixture, capsicum, cucumber and avocado. Serve.


SERVING SUGGESTION: Reduced-salt tamari (Japanese soy sauce). TIP: Sushi seasoning is a mixture of rice vinegar, salt and sugar used to season sushi rice. If unavailable you can use 2 teaspoons rice vinegar seasoned with a small pinch each of salt and caster sugar.
