Salmon Skin Roll Recipe

Salmon Skin Roll
The fish skin is something that most of us would probably throw away so we can get straight to the meat. What most of us don't know is that it's actually good for you. Salmon skin, in particular, contains concentrated amounts of omega 3 fatty acids which help with conditions like hypertension and rheumatoid arthritis. What's even better about the salmon skin is that it tastes absolutely amazing deep fried. This Salmon Skin Roll is as nutritious as it is delicious, and it's so easy to make.

Making the Roll
  1. Before anything else, see if there is any scaleless salmon skin in your local market or if they can take the scales out for you. If not, separate the scales from the skin. You can do this by sliding a sharp knife over the skin, against the direction of the scales, at a 30 degree angle.
  2. (Optional) Lightly season the skin with salt and pepper
  3. Once you've separated the scale from the skin, deep fry the skin in the tempura batter and then deep fry for 20-30 seconds.
  4. Place a nori sheet on the white mat, put the training frame on top of the nori
  5. Spread sushi rice on the empty space from the training frame
  6. Take off the frame, then align the salmon skin tempura on the rice from end-to-end
  7. Roll your sushi with the white mat
  8. Place the cutting guide over your roll to cut into even slices
  9. Serve with the best brand of soy sauce you can find
