Smoked Sockeye Salmon Sushi Hand Rolls

Have you visited a sushi restaurant and ordered some amazing sushi hand rolls? Did you know they are super easy to make at home and you can customize it with any fillings you like? I love making these since they make for a great snack or even a fast tasty meal.

What Can I Put into My Hand Rolls?

Best part about making your own hand rolls is that you can put whatever YOU like into them! If you are a vegetarian, you can add only veggies. If you don’t like raw fish or don’t have a reputable place to buy sushi grade raw fish, you can add SeaChange amazing Smoked Sockeye Salmon.
Their smoked salmon is out of this world and makes your sushi hand rolls simply divine!

Who is SeaChange Seafoods?

SeaChange have been around for over 30 years and is a proud Canadian company. If you live or have visited Canada, you have likely seen their items from grocery stores to the airport. SeaChange is definitely a Canadian favourite and the way they make smoked salmon is amazing!

How is Smoked Salmon Made?

Have you ever wondered how smoked salmon is made? I was always fascinated at how after smoking the salmon, it is shelf stable! “The process of smoking salmon was perfected by Canada’s First Nations peoples as a method of preserving the wild salmon catch for a long winter.” Seachange has perfected the art of smoking salmon and this is how they do it!

  • “Uncooked salmon is lightly salted and surrounded with hardwood smoke for several hours.
  • The salmon absorbs the delicate flavour of the smoke. This is called “cold smoking” because the salmon is not cooked during the smoking process.
  • After it has been cold smoked, the salmon is heated in a gold foil pouch to destroy any bacteria that may be present.
  • Processing in this manner produces the only type of shelf-stable smoked salmon. SeaChange salmon does not need to be refrigerated until it is opened. It can withstand any climate and remain safe to eat”

How to Store Smoked Salmon?

If you have some self control and are able to not eat the whole pouch of smoked salmon, you can refrigerate any leftovers and it is best to use it up within five days! But I highly doubt you need to worry about that!

Is Smoked Salmon Good for You?

This is a very popular question and I have good news! Salmon is VERY good for you! It is full of great things like omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin D, Vitamin B, potassium, protein and many more! So including salmon regularly into your diet can help decrease inflammation, lower your blood pressure, reduce cancer risks and so much more! Don’t you wish all delicious foods have all these benefits?
