Salmon Curricanes… they are basically salmon or tuna roll ups stuffed with spicy crab or surimi, avocado and cucumber. Usually served over a creamy orange sauce ❤️. I always get asked where I get my japanese mayo from, and I usually order it online, or I find it at my local asian market.

Why You’ll Love Salmon Curricanes

These are so fresh, light and delicious. The orange sauce enhance the flavor of the dish so much and takes it to the next level. They are honestly super easy and simple to make, which makes them a perfect appetizer for your next dinner party. I usually make some variation of salmon when I am hosting and these are always a hit.


You can substitute the salmon for tuna, and swap the avocado and cucumber for your veggies of choice! You don’t have to do spicy crab if you aren’t a fan of spicy, and just leave the crab as is… and you can also leave the serrano out.
