Calories 32kcal


  • 2 oz Salmon sashimi grade
  • 1 oz Cream Cheese
  • 2 Whole Cucumbers Persian/Japanese
  • 2 tbsp Kewpie Mayo can sub with regular mayo
  • 2 tbsp Toasted Sesame Seeds
  • 1 tbsp Soy Sauce optional if you use sushi grade salmon


  • Gather all the ingredients.
  • Cut cream cheese into 1/2 x 1 inch and set aside. You'll need a total of 12 pieces.
  • Cut 1 cucumber into 1/2 x 1 inch pieces and set aside. You can do this by cutting cucumber in half longways and then cutting it in half again longways. Then cut the strips into 1 inch lengths as shown below. You will need a total of 12 pieces.
  • Cut salmon into 1/2 x 1/2 inch cubes and set aside. You will need a total of 12 pieces.
  • Use the other cucumber and a mandoline to make 12 thinly sliced cucumbers long ways. If you don't have a mandoline, you can also use a vegetable peeler or knife, but the slices have to be thin enough to wrap without breaking.
  • Lightly sprinkle Toasted Sesame Seeds onto one side of the cucumbers and then flip the cucumber over to the other side.
  • Place a piece of salmon and cucumber in the middle of the sliced cucumber, followed by a piece of cream cheese and a light squeeze of Kewpie Mayo.
  • Take the thicker end of the sliced cucumber 1st and fold over, then fold the other end over to form a roll. Serve with Soy Sauce if you are using sushi grade salmon. Smoked salmon has enough flavor without Soy Sauce.
