Smoked Salmon Wraps
This is a very simple wrap that's perfect for a light, healthy lunch. Combine small pieces of smoked salmon with cooked long grain brown rice, topped off with marinated cucumber. Simply fold the lettuce around the rice/smoked salmon/cucumber mixture and eat it like a taco. I use smoked salmon because the flavor is stronger than just regular cooked salmon. I also use brown rice instead of white rice because of the texture it brings to the dish, and because it's good for you.

Ingredients:
One pound of smoked salmon, broken into small pieces
1 cup of long grain brown rice
1 large head of leaf lettuce
1 Japanese cucumber
1/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar

Procedure:
Simply buy already smoked salmon or smoke it yourself. Break the salmon up into small bite-size pieces and mix it with the cooked, and cooled, rice that was seasoned with a little salt. Put 3 lettuce leaves, minus some of the tough stem, on 4 plates. Fill each lettuce leaf with the salmon rice mixture. Now shred a cucumber and sprinkle with seasoned rice vinegar and top off the wrap with the cucumber.
That's it!

This recipe will easily feed 4 people, with two or three wraps per person, or you could make one per person as an appetizer. For other wrap ideas, click here.

Note: Don't overfill the lettuce leaves with too much of the rice mixture because it makes it hard to fold and eat.
