  • For the pickled cucumber:
  • 1 lb Pure Flavor® Uno Bites™ Nano Cucumbers, thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 1/2 tsp rice vinegar
  • 1/4 – 1/2 tsp chilli powder, to taste
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • For the sandwich:
  • 12 oz cooked sushi rice
  • 4 sushi nori seaweed sheets
  • 1 pack hot smoked salmon flakes (optional)
  • 1 small avocado, stoned and thinly sliced
  • 4 leaves romaine lettuce or kale
  • 3 radishes, thinly sliced
  • soy sauce, for dipping (optional)


  1. To make the pickled cucumber, combine all the ingredients in a bowl, cover and refrigerate.
  2. Lay a nori sheet rough side up on a piece of clingfilm. Wet fingers to prevent sticking and position a quarter of the cooked rice in the centre. Shape it into a square with the flat sides facing the corners of the nori sheet. Season with a pinch of salt.
  3. Position half the salmon, avocado, sliced radishes, lettuce and a spoonful of the cucumber pickle on top of the rice. Put another quarter of the rice on top. Season with a small pinch of salt.
  4. Wet fingers and fold the corners of the nori sheet into the centre to create a square shape. Wrap in clingfilm and gently press down. Set aside for 5 mins for the nori sheet to soften. Repeat with the second parcel.
  5. To serve, slice through the centre of the nori with a wet sharp knife. Remove the clingfilm and serve immediately.
