Holy Guacamole! Mexican-Inspired Nori Rolls

I've found during my 20 years as a professional chef that the best dishes happen intuitively.

This recipe came about as I was making a typical veggie nori roll, because I wanted to use an avocado that would soon be overripe.

So I got out all the ingredients I had on hand: carrots, scallions, zucchini, avocado, tomatoes, etc.

Then I cut the avocado in half, scooped it out and mashed it onto the nori sheet with my hands, added the tomatoes and then realized I'd pretty much made guacamole!

So I ignored most of the veggies and instead grated a red onion, chopped a jalapeño real fine, added a squeeze of lemon and some parsley, and started to roll it when I realized I needed some crunch.

I grabbed a couple of tortilla chips, smashed them into crumbs, added them to the roll and I had myself a delicious guacamole-nori roll!

Guacamole-Nori Roll

Makes 4 rolls

Ingredients:

  • 2 nori sheets, cut in half
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 roma tomato (or 4 grape tomatoes) finely diced
  • 1/2 red onion, grated
  • 1 jalapeño, finely diced
  • 4 tortilla chips,smashed into crumbs (I used chips with a hint of lime)
  • Parsley or cilantro, finely chopped
  • A squeeze of fresh lemon or lime
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Cut each nori sheet in half for a total of 4 sheets. Place each sheet shiny side down and gently mash half of an avocado onto each sheet. Top the avocado with the 1/4 of the tomatoes, onions, jalapeño, cilantro or parsley and the tortilla chip crumbs.

Season each with a squeeze of lemon or lime, and salt and pepper.

Gently but tightly, fold the roll from one of the shorter sizes to the other and then cut in half. Serve with your favorite sauce. I just used soy sauce.
