I love all different kinds of fish and elaborate sushi rolls. However, there’s something sacred and refreshing about a classic California roll. That’s what I was craving tonight.
There is some speculation around whether or not kani is allowed on the 5&1 plan. So to be safe, I would replace with real crab or shrimp!
Makes 2 Rolls:
Bamboo sushi roller
7 oz shrimp or real crab
1 English Cucumber (2-3 greens depending on weight of slices)
2.25 oz avocado (1 1/2 healthy fats)
1 tbsp lite mayo (1/2 healthy fat)
1 tsp sriracha (1 condiment)
2 tbsp lite soy sauce (2 condiments)
Whisk together sriracha and mayo to make spicy mayo.
Peel the cucumber and slice it with vegetable slicer into 1-2 inch wide strips. You will work your way around the cucumber to avoid the seeds in the middle. *Reference video at bottom of page for tutorial
Lay the sushi roller on a cutting board.
Place half of the cucumber slices vertically in a way, that each slice overlaps the other a little bit.
Slice your avocado and place half horizontally on the cucumber slices, like you would making regular sushi rolls.
Add half of the shrimp or crab.
Roll it the same way like sushi rolls and at the end gently press it tight.
Gently slice into sushi pieces.
Repeat process for second roll.
Top with a drop of spicy mayo.
Dip in soy sauce to enjoy!
