Fishing season is in full-swing to the north, and this salmon wrap is a fresh and spicy way to celebrate.
Recipe and image shared with us by the Alaska Seafood Council.
There are a good handful of canned wild Alaskan salmon brands on the market, but my favorite by far is Pure Alaska Salmon. They offer both pink salmon (light color, mild flavor) and red sockeye salmon (richer, more intense flavor and color), and deliver seriously amazing fish. And though the boneless variety is the “prettiest”, the bones do contain a very good dose of dairy-free calcium and magnesium, and they are tender thanks to pressure-cooking.
Special Diet Notes: Alaskan Salmon Wrap
By ingredients, this recipe is dairy-free / non-dairy, egg-free, optionally gluten-free, nut-free, peanut-free, and optionally soy-free.
To keep this salmon wrap allergy-friendly, look for a cream cheese alternative that suits you dietary needs. Many are soy-based, but Daiya offers a soy-free option. If you prefer a from-scratch salmon wrap, use my favorite cashew cream cheese alternative recipe. In a pinch, you could also substitute your favorite vegan or traditional (all-natural) mayonnaise.
