Mini Smoked Salmon Hand Rolls

By Worker Bee


Primal AviarySushi hand rolls might sound like an extravagant treat, but this recipe turns hand rolls into a super-easy snack. Kids love these salmon hand rolls after school (maybe omit the hot chiles?) and adults love them pretty much any time of day or night.

The switch is subbing out raw sashimi grade tuna and using smoked salmon instead. This avoids the issue of mercury from tuna, and makes it easier to pack hand rolls for an afternoon snack at school or work without worrying about spoilage. Plus, the omega-3s from fatty salmon and the monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acids from Primal Kitchen Mayo® mean these hand rolls are both a nutritious and delicious snack.

Let’s get started. Mix up hot chiles, ginger, garlic, sesame oil, rice vinegar and a dollop of Primal Kitchen Mayo. Spoon the spicy salmon onto a square of nori, garnish with thinly sliced cucumber and avocado, fold and eat. It’s so good, and so easy.

Servings: 8 to 10 mini hand rolls

Time in the Kitchen: 10 minutes



  • 8 ounces smoked salmon, shredded into small pieces (230 g)
  • 1 Thai chile pepper or other hot pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger (5 ml)
  • 1 small garlic clove, pressed or finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil (10 ml)
  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar (10 ml)
  • 2 tablespoons Primal Kitchen Mayo (30 ml)
  • Seaweed Snacks, or Nori cut into 4 squares
  • Cucumber, thinly sliced
  • Avocado, cut into thin wedges
  • Black sesame seeds, for garnish


salmon mixture

Whisk together chile pepper, ginger, garlic, sesame oil, rice vinegar and mayo.

Mix in the salmon.

Spoon about a tablespoon of salmon onto a small square of dried seaweed. Add a strip of cucumber and avocado. Fold the seaweed around the salmon so it’s in the shape of an ice-cream cone. Garnish with black sesame seeds.

I Have Zero Patience With Technology

Oh, Friday was a frustrating day. It started off fine with a tasty breakfast, but within minutes of opening my laptop, I wanted to throw it out the window.

I attempted to work before Quinn woke up, but my laptop was so messed up, I spent the whole time fighting with it. Ughhhhhh!

Once Qman woke up, I got him ready for school and dropped him off. On the way to the gym, I swung by Target for some necessities for a get-together at our house this weekend. Plus, I found a few goodies in the Dollarspot that I obviously needed. New hand towels? Yep! Pumpkin spice candle in a cute mug? Definitely.

I was feeling so blah about working out – I almost didn’t go to CrossFit. The workout was really tough and totally kicked my butt, but I’m glad I made it to class! Breaking a sweat with friends definitely put me in a better mood.

When I returned home, all I wanted was CARBS! I made myself a big bowl of Pumpkin Spice Cheerios mixed with Peanut Butter Puffins and almond milk. 

After that, I took a quick shower and made myself a couple shots of decaf espresso mixed with SFH vanilla protein powder and some cream to go. 

My first stop: Compter VIP. These guys actually fixed when my previous computer when it blew up a few years ago. Hopefully, they can save the day again.

The computer place is right across the street from our beloved Lime Leaf, so, of course I needed to order takeout for dinner. 🙂

After running my errands, my stomach was seriously starting to grumble, so I reheated some ground chicken mixed with salsa, shredded cheddar, and sautĂ©ed spinach for a late lunch. 

After that, I attempted to do some work from my phone, but I eventually got so frustrated, I just gave up. I realized I wasn’t going to get much work done, so I took Murphy for a walk and then picked up Quinn early from preschool.

The rest of the evening was much better… low-key and relaxing with my boys. We had wine and Lime Leaf for dinner and caught up with Big Brother once Quinn went to bed.
