Advanced paleotics: riceless makis

And now, after the basics of paleo below (see Omelette and Coconut Cream&Berries), something a little more advanced: paleo sushi (to be exact, sushi means vinegar rice so these really aren’t sushi, pardon my Japanese). Sashimi is already nicely paleo and the sushi rolls only need omitting of the rice, not too complicated. It’s possible to do these in the form of temakis (bigger rolls eaten with hands), makis or why not just throw everything on a plate and not roll at all. Rocks anyway.


The idea has long been maturing in my mind and this pushed me over the edge to actually prepare them. I experimented with two different meats (cold-smoke beef and suolaliha, salty meat?!) and cold-smoked salmon, the last one being absolutely the best. Other one of my favourite was the one where I substituted the rice with grated carrot; very, very moist and tasty! These would probably work also brilliantly with whitefish that is thinly sliced and salted (graavisiika) and with some smoked ham. And of course the Japanese thin omelette, Tamago.


Riceless maki rolls

  • nori sheets
  • thinly sliced meat/fish/Japanese omelette
  • veggies: carrots, cucumber, spring onion
  • avocado

Prepare the veggies by cutting the into long matchstick size sticks, also the avocado. Take out the nori sheet and place it on a sushi mat. Cover it evenly with the meat/fish/omelette leaving a little space on the other end of the sheet. Place the desired veggies in a row quite near the low end as shown in the picture and roll, roll, roll! If you want to, you may used a little wasabi inside the rolls as well, rubbing it into the meat (thin “stripe” under the veggies). Use a little water to slightly moisturize the end of the sheet to make it keep together. Cut into bite size portions with a sharp knife.



OR proceed as above, but instead of covering the sheet with the meat, cover it with grated carrot (or maybe cucumber, courgette or whatnot) and place the meat similarly to the veggies in the previous one.

Serve with organic Shoyu soy sauce, wasabi and nori, sushi ginger.


So next time I wanna put a maki feast together, I’m gonna opt for:

  • cold smoked salmon
  • graavisiika (the salted whitefish)
  • grated carrot and some tasty meat
  • …and may even be rolling a chorizo in a sheet? Why not bacon 😀


  1. Wow, this looks great indeed! I love sushi but try to avoid rice and I’ve never quite figured out how to deal with that combination but here is the answer 🙂 Thanks!

  2. Karjalanpiirakka, uu jeah, and actually two answers 🙂 Tho I think it works perfectly together to have both “carrot rice” makis and some more meaty/fishy makis. Mmm mmm mmmmmmm. Could also use raw salmon, tuna et cetera! Or raw meat, of course 🙂

  3. I once tried riceless maki rolls just by leaving it out (ie put some cucumber, avocado and fish stripes on the sea weed and rolled). Did not work that well, the seaweed went all wet and mushy so you need something there. Definately will test next the cold smoked salmon version! Thanks for the excellent idea! 🙂

    Btw, I also finally tested the lime pie, with the recipe from Ilon pisara (pie with a “cake”). It was soooo good. I was going to freeze so of it but my dear fiancé destroyed it all during the weekend 🙂

  4. … to be exact, I did not quite follow that recipe either, as I did not have carob. Not even sure what that is but I faguely remembered that somewhere sometimes somebody said that it can replace chocolate, so I just threw some chocloate poweder (the real stuff from the meateater) and it was yummy.

  6. Emma, only now noticing your comments! Pardon me. And well yes, it’s a delicate balance between too moist and too dry with nori 🙂 Lime pie?! Gotta check that out. And oh yes, I always use raw chocolate powder instead of carob. I tried to eat carob years ago and left quite some traumas… But with cacao powder everything works! 😛

    Insanity, hah kiitos 😀 Sussakin on kyllä varmaan sellasta lihanrullaajan vikaa 😉
