Sashimi salad with pomegranate and wakame

Try this colorful sashimi salad – I promise you won’t regret. It is just as delicious as sushi and maki, it is quicker to make, and it is low carb since there’s no rice.

Sashimi salad with pomegranate and wakame


Serves: 2
Time: 5 minutes
Difficulty: Easy


2 handfuls finely sliced salad
1 avocado, finely sliced
1 teaspoon lemon juice
7 oz. (200g) organic sushi grade salmon loin
1 tablespoon wakame
1 teaspoon pickled ginger, finely sliced
2 tablespoons pomegranate gems


1 tablespoon gluten free salt reduced soy sauce
1 “pea” of wasabi
½ teaspoon lemon juice Sashimi salad with pomegranate and wakame

Find two plates and place one handful of salad to each of them. Put the avocado on top of the salad and drizzle a little lemon juice to prevent it from browning. Cut the salmon into thin slices and put on top of the avocado. Sprinkle wakame, pickled ginger and pomegranate on top. Stir together the dressing and pour over one tablespoon to each, and serve the rest on the side.Sashimi salad with pomegranate and wakame

    Hi! Thank you for posting this great recipe! I cannot wait to try it 🙂
    I was just wondering where you sourced your wakame from. I absolutely love it but I haven’t found one that doesn’t contain HFCS or nasty preservatives! Could you please guide me to a Paleo friendly source?

    • Hi Lauren,

      Thank you so much!

      I buy the wakame from my local fishmonger. Have you tried asking somewhere they make sushi? If they make the wakame salad themselves you can probably buy the algae without the dressing. You can also buy it dry and soak it in water. The water gives the algae the natural consistency back, and then you can add flavors such as sesame oil and rice vinegar, and use the sweetener you prefer. Look for them at a Japanese food market, or search on the Internet for someone who sells organic dried seaweed goma wakame.

      Good luck!
