Swap your nori sheets with cucumber ribbons to make these fresh inside-out sushi rolls. With a slather of cream cheese, smoked salmon and a dash of wasabi paste, these are perfect for pre-dinner nibbles or a creative snack.

  1. Put the rice into a pan with 150ml cold water. Bring to a gentle simmer and cook, part covered, for 10 mins.
  2. When all the water has been absorbed, remove from the heat, cover and rest for 5 mins. Stir in the vinegar, tip onto a plate then put in the fridge to cool fully.
  3. Put the cucumber ribbons on a large board. Dab with kitchen roll to dry a little, then gently spread a little soft cheese along each ribbon. Cut in half widthways. Lay a slice of salmon on each end, leaving about an inch free on one side. Dot a little wasabi onto the salmon followed by a thin, single layer of rice. Roll up from the salmon end.
  4. Whisk the dressing ingredients together and serve with the sushi rolls. Serve immediately.
