Cauliflower Salmon Sushi Roll

Healthy and delicious spin on one of my favorite foods

I am obsessed with sushi. Always have been since it was introduced into my life when I was a child.

Fortunately, there’s the replacing rice with cauliflower option at home, which can save you a bunch of calories and carbs when you’re trying to eat healthier.

Yelp review to follow. Overall- fresh sashimi at affordable prices. Definitely a hidden gem. Authentic Japanese family ran place. The old lady was so cute and nice. Service, while may be more relaxed/slower than rush lunches, was impeccable. They are so nice and welcoming. Great hospitality and great food. Definitely a favorite.
