Low Carb Sushi

What does sushi without rice equal? 
Low carb sushi!!!!
Tonight, I bring you the enjoyment of sushi.  You can make it anyway you wish.  I used smoked salmon, red peppers, orange peppers, yellow peppers (I like colour) and avocado.  I usually use cucumber too but I forgot to buy some at the grocery store.  This meal takes minutes to prepare.  Unwrap the smoked salmon, slice the peppers and avocado in long lengths and assemble.
If you prefer your sushi with rice here is a link for a recipe to make “sushi cauliflower rice.”

The faux sushi rice uses:
1 cup frozen cauliflower
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp cream cheese
If this is your first time making sushi, you can find Nori wrappers in your grocery store in the international section.
Step 1:
Cut up your vegetables
Step 2:
Cut the wrap in half (unless you are making the faux sushi rice then use the whole wrapper).
Step 3:
Layer the avocado, vegetables, and meat on one end of the wrapper.
Step 4:
Roll, beginning with the end with the veggies/meat.
Step 5:
If the wrapper is not sealing, dab a little of the avocado onto the edge of the wrapper and it should seal.  Cut into sections.  I made 7 pieces of sushi with half of the wrapper.
Serve with soy sauce and wasabi.
Nutritional Information:
Each Nori wrapper is net zero carbs.
The carb count depends on what you put into your sushi.  To make the sushi in the picture I used roughly ½ of an avocado, 2 slices of smoked salmon, 1 Nori wrapper, about ½ of a pepper (estimated total of the 3 peppers I chopped).

    So excited I found your blog. My husband and I have been doing LC (Atkins) for over 10 years now. I was grinding my own almond flour and everyone thought I was crazy!! I went from a size 16 to a size 4, so then they told me “that can't be good for you”! NEVER listened. My husband and I play a game..”If you could have one thing, what would it be?” And 9 out of 10 times my answer was “SUSHI”. I made it similar to yours however didn't think to use the cauliflower. Thanks so much, I have gotten many great new ideas from your blog!!

      WOW from a size 16 to a size 4! That is amazing! I have had a lot of people tell me my meals cannot be good for me because I eat too much natural fat without whole grains. 10 years of low carbing you must be a pro at cooking/baking this way. Your story is so inspiring. Would you ever be interested in sharing your story on a blog post? You can let me know via my e-mail
