For the Sushi rolls

  • 35 g smoked salmon
  • 6 king prawns
  • 1 tsp tamari sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • ½ small red bell pepper
  • ½ large cucumber sliced into 6, 3cm discs
  • 50 g cauliflower rice

For the Dressing

  • 2 tbsp tamari sauce
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp lime juice
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • ½ tsp dried chilli flakes

For the Salad

  • 4 small radishes thinly sliced
  • 30 g baby spinach
  • 1 medium spring onion (green onion) sliced
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp fresh coriander (cilantro)
  • 1 medium avocado diced


  • Add the cauliflower rice to a small pan along with a tablespoon of water. Bring to a simmer and cook for 2-3 minutes until all the liquid has evaporated. Stir in the sesame oil and tamari sauce and set aside to cool.
  • Carefully scoop the centre out of the cucumber discs using a teaspoon, leaving roughly a
    4mm thick edge. Dice the scooped cucumber flesh and set aside.
  • Roughly chop the prawns and salmon and dice the pepper into small chunks.
  • Once the rice has completely cooled, stuff a teaspoon full into each hollowed cucumber ring.
  • Divide the prawns, salmon and peppers between the cucumber rings, so that they are tightly packed with filling.
  • Whisk together the dressing ingredients in a small bowl.
  • Mix the diced avocado and spring onion with the reserved diced cucumber. Stir through the fresh cilantro and add to a large serving or salad bowl.
  • Add the sushi filled cucumber to the bowl along with the spinach and sliced radishes.
  • Scatter everything with sesame seeds and drizzle with the spiced tamari dressing to serve.
