Nutritional values

Cucumbers consist of more than 95 percent water. This means that the vegetables help to optimize the daily fluid intake and thus to tighten as well as plump up the skin from the inside. The fitter magnesium from Avocado is great for muscles, as the mineral plays a role in building muscle tissue. Omega-3 fatty acids from avocado and Salmon provide for a healthy heart.

If you like to make the sushi rolls vegetarian, you can replace the salmon with paper-thin slices of smoked tofu.

Preparation steps


Bring rice to a boil with approx. 16 ounces of water in a saucepan. Cover and leave to swell over low heat for approx. 20 minutes.


Meanwhile, clean, wash and cut cucumber lengthwise into sticks. Halve bell bell pepper, clean, wash and cut into strips. Cut avocado in half, remove stone, lift flesh from peel and also cut into strips. Sort spinach, wash and spin dry.


Gently heat rice vinegar with honey and 1/2 tsp salt in a saucepan and stir into hot rice. Spread rice out flat on a large plate and let steam out. Soak rice paper sheets one at a time in cold water and place on a clean, damp kitchen towel.


Cover rice paper sheets with spinach, leaving a small margin all around, then spread rice on top. Place salmon in the center as a strip on top, spread with horseradish and top with cucumber, bell bell pepper and avocado. Fold in the edges and roll up tightly from the bottom. Cut rolls into 3-4 pieces and arrange on plates. Cut cress from the bed and sprinkle on the Sushi Rolls with Graved Salmon.
