Wow, how impressive that you made this up! I can see why this went into someone's best of the year cookbook, it really is that delicious. I used fat free cream cheese and lox (to approximate the raw salmon I get in my Philadelphia rolls). I think putting a little thinly sliced cucumber on these would complete the perfection. I could see crab or other vegetarian items replacing the lox too. This was super filling for breakfast, it could feed twice as many for some people.
If you invented this OUTSTANDING recipe, you should definitely get your own cooking show and write a cookbook too! This is better than lots of sushi I've had, because of the "crunch" from the rice cake - ironically, since I don't really like rice cakes. They're so good in this application. I used neufchatel cheese to cut down on fat, and chilled the salmon mixture for a few hours. I couldn't taste the wasabi so next time will make wasabi paste and spread it across the rice cake before the salmon mixture. This unbelievably does satisfy a sushi craving!
Picholine, you are a genius! I made this exactly as posted (using salmon), but just doubled everything. I also found some tamari rice cakes which upped the sushi factor. We really enjoyed this, and I now try to make sure I have the ingredients on hand.
Absolutely fantastic recipe!!! Highly recommended - I actually prefer this to store bought sushi rolls. A definite keeper, and thanks for posting!!!
Thanks to Best of 2011 Cookbook Official Game I picked this nice recipe to try.
Being a sushi lover I could not wait to try this. I love it.
The next time I make this recipe I would love to try other options with this like I would go out and buy.
So worth trying.
very nice recipe! :) quick and easy too.. very tasty I also added extra sesame seeds.. I used fresh ginger
What a neat idea! I don't like canned salmon, but leftover salmon works great here, too. I also like more sesame seeds (more like 4 times as much for me), wasabi paste instead of powder, and pickled ginger is a must for me (again, personal preference). This is a nice lunch. Thank you!
