I eat plenty of just Sashimi ( Raw Fish) I've put away a pound of Salmon in 1 sitting regularly,
Sushi rolls are a vice I'm having a hard time abstaining from
I'm a sushi holic
I need a substitute for rice when rolling maki , perhaps cauliflower can be made sticky somehow?
Help, I'd like to eliminate my last grain...
doubtful that the cauliflower rice will work...not sticky.
I have had sushi rolls wrapped with cucumber instead of rice. you can ask them to do it at restraunts, most will for a fee of course!
I like to substitute the rice with eggs. Take a couple of eggs and whisk them together really well. Get a really good non-stick pan and cook a very thin layer of egg on the surface of the pan. Take the egg that you just cooked and sprinkle a bit of vinegar on it (for flavor). Lay the egg on your nori sheet and add vegetables, fish, etc and roll it up as usual. This is where I got the idea... http://www.marksdailyapple.com/sushi-with-a-twist/#more-10774
You could make those cone shaped hand rolls and skip the rice altogether or if you really want to play with a rice substitute I'd try playing with some kind of cold mash, like maybe mashed parsnip or cauliflower to bind your crunchier cauliflower bits.
Try this http://www.konjacfoods.com/product/15.htm It's made from konjac, a Japanese plant that is zero carb and zero calorie. I've not tried the orzo rice myself but have been eating konjac noodles for years.
Just add avocado to hold it all together,and do more of a handroll style...raw fish, avo, green onion, roe, homemade fermented ginger...yummy! I never miss the rice at Japanese restaurants anymore...I get to eat more sashimi, and most places will do a handroll for me with no rice.
If you search for raw diet recipes you will find Cauliflower rice recipe for sushi. I've made it and it's a very good substitute, you just have to watch the salt. The Raw diet has a lot of things that could be paleo (except it's vegan) but to add to paleo…good resource.
