It's been a while since I made any sort of sushi (like my low carb Maki). These hand rolls are made with soft and flakey cooked salmon, crunchy cucumber, ripe avocado, and zingy green onions.

They're all wrapped in nori sheets, which you can often find in the Asian section of big grocery stores. They're typically just made from pressed seaweed, and they're zero carb! Nori is a great source of nutrients like calcium (10 times more than milk!), copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, and zinc, plus vitamins A, B, C, D, E and K, as well as niacin, folic acid and taurine! What a superfood!

Starting from the filled end, roll it up. Use a little water to seal the end of the nori so that it sticks to itself. Cut in half.
