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.

Cucumber Salmon Sushi

(serves 2 as a starter)

1 organic cucumber
wash the cucumber, cut unpeeled into thin strips lengthwise with a vegetable peeler
lay the cucumber strips out on a cutting board, overlapping
100 g of cream cheese
distribute in the lower third on the cucumber strips
1 avocado, cut into thin strips
spread flat on the cream cheese
100 g smoked salmon
spread on the avocado strips
2 handfuls of baby spinach or rocket salad
spread on the smoked salmon
some sprigs of coriander
put on the spinach or rocket
now fold the cucumber strips over the filling (if necessary, use a spatula (better: dough card) and roll up the whole thing tightly into a roll
slice the roll with a sharp knife and arrange the cucumber sushi
black pepper, freshly ground
Piment d'Espelette or ground chili
sprinkle spices over the sushi slices and serve

Wasabi ginger dip

The halibut, which is a flounder

The name is misleading, because strictly speaking, the white halibut is a flounder, because he is right-eyed. His body is brown-black and white on the “blind side”, hence the name. It can become incredible four meters long. Ours was not that big…

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.
