Sushi Burrito

As a cyclist a lot of your time is spent on the road. Junk food temptation is at an all time high. 

Pack one of these super nutritious burritos for the perfect post ride or race recovery meal. 

Full of nutrients, protein, healthy fats and fast release carbs, you can kick start your recovery before you even arrive home.


  • 1 mug sushi rice

  • 2 tbsp rice wine vinegar 

  • 2 tbsp mirin 

  • 2 tbsp sugar

  • 1 carrot 

  • 1/2 cucumber 

  • 1/2 avocado 

  • 1 spring onion

  • 1/2 pack smoked salmon

  • 4 or 5 cooked king prawns

  • Coriander 

  • Nori sheets

  • Soy sauce


Rinse rice, or soak it for 30 min in cold water. Drain, then add to pan with 2 mugs worth of water. Lid on, bring to the boil then simmer until the waters gone, around 15 min.  

In another small pan add the vinegar, mirin and sugar. Gently heat until the sugar has dissolved.  

Once the rice is cooked, tip it on to a baking sheet in one layer to cool. Pour over most of the seasoning from the other pan.  

While it's cooling prepare you filling. Use a speed peeler to make some nice thin strips of carrot and cucumber. Finely slice the avocado and prawns.  

Now layer everything up like in the photos below. Make sure the rice layer is nice and even. It will be quite sticky so use the left over seasoning to wet your fingers a little. Roll it up tight and wet the end of the nori to seal. 

Wrap it up tight in cling flim. Refrigerate for an hour or so then cut. Enjoy with a little soy sauce to replenish those electrolytes.
