Using store-bought tortillas as extra wrappers around the seaweed is the trick to turning this Japanese favorite into an easy potluck dish. A simple, homemade wasabi mayonnaise offers a nice contrast to the crunchy cucumber.

Serves 4


  • 1 tsp. wasabi powder
  • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 cups cooked short-grain sushi rice, cooled
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped green onions
  • 1 tsp. mayonnaise
  • 1⁄8 tsp. hot pepper flakes
  • 6 10-inch white or whole wheat tortillas
  • 6 sheets nori
  • 1 1⁄2 lbs peeled cooked shrimp, chopped
  • 1 cup chopped avocado
  • 1 cup finely chopped cucumber
  • 1⁄3 cup soy sauce


In a small bowl, combine wasabi and 1 tsp. water. Add 2 Tbsp. soy sauce and mix well.

In a medium bowl, combine rice, wasabi mixture, green onions, mayonnaise and hot pepper flakes.

Line each tortilla with nori. Arrange rice mixture equally in center of each wrap. Add shrimp, avocado and cucumber. Fold both ends over filling. Roll up and serve with soy sauce.
