Creamy avocado adds some healthy fat, cauliflower tastes like sushi rice, and nori is a simple and yummy way to hold it all together.
Nori is actually seaweed, and it’s a good source of iodine. The shrimp adds a ton of tummy-filling protein to this recipe.
Avocado is full of healthy fat and will sustain your energy for hours after eating this dish. Cauliflower, which is a cruciferous veggie, is not just a great rice stand-in; it’s also packed with nutrition!
The balance of protein, fat, and a little carb from the mango makes this recipe a very healthy choice.
While these shrimp rolls will indeed keep you full for a while, they only take a few minutes to make! Just stir up a batch of homemade mango salsa, steam some riced cauliflower, and cook some shrimp, and all that’s left to do is roll it all up in nori!
You can also use pre-cooked shrimp to cut down on the time even more. If you don’t have shrimp, your favorite wild-caught white fish would be nice in these, too.
The rolls are best eaten immediately after rolling. If you like, you can set out the nori sheet and all the toppings buffet-style. It’s a great way to serve these at a party.
So next time you’re craving something that’s a little different, but still amazingly easy to make, try these shrimp and mango hand rolls! They are sure to be a hit.
