Cucumber salmon sushi - a quick recipe for hot days
July 17th, 2023 | main dishes
Hot days, tropical nights – you don’t have an appetite for a warm meal? And don’t feel like standing in the kitchen for a long time? Then these cucumber salmon sushi are just right for you! They are quickly “assembled” and simply taste delicious! I’ll show you how to do it:
With “real” sushi, the sticky sushi rice keeps the roll in shape. However, the rice must first be washed extensively and then boiled. A rather lengthy procedure. With the Cucumber Salmon Sushi, thinly sliced cucumber strips provide the necessary support for salmon, salad, etc. Together with one or maybe two or three different dips, this green roll is simply unbeatable! Also ingenious: Use raw sashimi-quality salmon instead of smoked salmon.
Vegetarians can of course also use mango strips, roasted, chopped cashews or peanuts instead of salmon, I can also imagine a very thin fried omelette or crumbled feta cheese – there are no limits to your imagination.

Heligoland “Knieper“ [Crab claw] @home
For many years I pestered my love, the captain, to travel to Heligoland [island in the North Sea] and eat „Knieper“. As a child of Cuxhaven I had so fantastic memories of that. Unfortunately we never managed to go there during the scanty holiday periods with all the other dates. What did I see yesterday on our weekly market at the market stall of our fish seller (you know, the one with the pulpo WhatsApp)? Knieper – incredible! Purchased, brought home and into the pot.read more
