Ingredients in Canned Salmon Sushi Roll Uramaki

canned salmon mix ingredients mise en place
  • Canned Salmon — drained
  • Labneh — we prefer the creaminess of Turkish labneh, as opposed to mayo because it is lower in fat and calories. The texture and flavor of labneh (similar to cream cheese) is quite satisfying, and you won’t miss the mayo. You can sub thick plain Greek yogurt, or if you’re planning in advance, you can make a batch of easy Instant Pot thick and creamy yogurt. Keep in mind homemade yogurt takes eight hours, but the Instant Pot does most of the work for you!
  • Sour Cream — prepare this mix with regular sour cream, not light or low fat.
  • Lemon Juice — freshly pressed lemon juice is best.
  • Hot Sauce — we use Frank’s for a little kick.
  • Salt — Himalayan pink salt, ground.

Can I Use Store Bought Salmon For Sushi?

Yes. You can definitely use grocery store or supermarket salmon in sushi rolls.

Although they are not in the traditional style, simple and delicious rolls like canned salmon sushi and spicy salmon sushi can be made easily with a can of salmon.

You can also make a variety of easy homemade sushi rolls with smoked salmon gravlax that you’ll find in the grocery or supermarket frozen seafood sections. You can purchase gravlax at IKEA Supermarket if you have a store nearby. We have included three gravlax salmon sushi recipes in our list of more sushi rolls below.

How To Make Canned Salmon Sushi Roll Uramaki

STEP 1: Make The Salmon Mix

If you don’t have any leftover salmon salad sandwich mix, you’ll need to prepare a quick salmon mix. Place the ingredients for the salmon mix into a medium bowl.

Mix well.

STEP 2: Spread Sushi Rice on Nori

Use your preferred method for spreading an equal layer of sushi rice on top of nori sheet. We have outlined the method that we find useful below. We go into more detail in How To Roll Sushi The Easy Way.

We find this process helps with handling the sticky rice. We use two plastic sheets made from cutting a Large Ziplock bag. In Step 1, add a half a cup of rice in between the two plastic sheets.

Then, in Step 2, flatten the rice, using your hands, to the size of the nori sheet. Carefully remove the top plastic sheet in the third step. Step 4 shows how you will place the nori sheet over top of the rice.

In Step 5, with a butter knife, trim the excess sushi rice that extends past the nori sheet. Step 6 illustrates two scenarios, uramaki or maki roll. In this case we are making a uramaki roll, with rice on the outside. Follow the left side of the pic, with the sushi rice under the nori sheet, facing DOWN. That way, when you roll it up, the rice will be on the outside of the roll.

STEP 3: Spread Salmon Mix on Nori Sheet

With sushi rice side down, spread an even layer or salmon mix on the nori sheet.

STEP 4: Add the Vegetables and Cream Cheese

Place sliced vegetables and cream cheese on the lower portion of the salmon, as shown.

STEP 5: Roll it up

Transfer the nori sheet with toppings, and with plastic sheet, on top of a bamboo sushi rolling mat. Roll the sushi up tightly.

STEP 6: Cut in Pieces

You may need to trim the ends if they are flimsy. Then, cut the sushi roll into equal pieces, approximately half an inch wide.

What To Serve With Canned Salmon Sushi Roll Uramaki

Serve canned salmon sushi rolls with pickled ginger, wasabi and soy sauce or tamari.

It’s also perfect with spicy mayo sauce. You can drizzle homemade spicy sriracha sushi mayo without mayo, over top of the spicy salmon rolls similar to spicy canned tuna sushi rolls (pictured below).

The sushi rolls are quite filling and you don’t need to serve more dishes. Although if you’d like to, there are some classic options you can consider.

Seaweed salad (wakame), chicken or beef teriyaki, Japanese potstickers (gyoza) and miso soup pair well with a sushi meal.

Since a batch of failproof instant pot sushi rice makes enough for eight delicious rolls, it makes sense to serve additional sushi rolls.

The list below are all super easy sushi to make as well.

More Sushi Rolls

Since a batch of failproof Instant Pot sushi rice makes enough for eight rolls, it only makes sense to make more sushi rolls! Plus, the fact that they all taste amazing and complement each other perfectly.

These are all easy and convenient sushi to make. We use IKEA gravad lax (gravlax) smoked salmon for three of the rolls. Shrimp sushi roll is made with IKEA cold water shrimp. The rest are made with canned seafood, salmon, tuna and crab. Super easy.

Storage Tips for Canned Salmon Sushi Roll Uramaki

As with any sushi, the sushi rice will harden as time goes on, so it’s best to enjoy the sushi when freshly made, or within a day or two.
