If  you think Japanese handrolls can only be enjoyed at your local sushi restaurant, think again! This simple recipe for Crab & Avocado Nori Handrolls will have dinner on the table in less than 10 minutes. It’s as simple as preparing a quick sandwich!

Pair these Crab & Avocado Nori Handrolls with a side salad for a light meal.  Not a fan of crab or looking for a vegetarian option?  I swapped out the crab in my recipe for Extra Firm Tofu and added some fresh ginger for a yummy alternative!

Nori is the most common Japanese seaweed. It is dried into sheets and is used to wrap foods. One sheet is almost void of calories, but does offer some Vitamin K and Vitamin  A as well as DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) which is a healthy omega-3 fat. Use up any leftover Nori sheets by crumbling them into your next salad or Asian dish for a unique flavor of the sea!
