Salmon Collard Snack Wraps with Ginger Miso Dip

Serves 4.


    Colourful, crisp, and packed with flavour, these wraps make a perfect light snack and are a great way to use up leftover salmon. 


    In a pinch

    In place of fresh salmon, these wraps also work well with canned salmon.

      For dip, in small bowl, whisk miso and water together. Add tahini, garlic, ginger, and apple cider vinegar, and whisk all together until combined. Set aside.


      For wraps, in medium bowl, mix salmon, lemon juice, and avocado by mashing all together with fork against sides of bowl. Season lightly with sea salt and pepper.


      Cut thick stem end off collard leaves to make them easier to wrap. On clean tea towel, place a collard leaf with stem side farthest from you. About 1 in (2.5 cm) from top of collard leaf, place one-quarter of salmon mixture, leaving room on both sides to fold collard leaf inward, “burrito style.”


      On top of salmon layer, place one-quarter of alfalfa sprouts, followed by one-quarter of sliced cabbage. Fold in both sides and wrap from the top, folding in sides as you wrap the whole collard leaf. Repeat with remaining 3 collard leaves and fillings.


      Serve with ginger miso dip.

      You might think of protein as something you mainly get from a meal and, therefore, not a component of dessert. But, if you’re going to opt for dessert from time to time, why not consider working in ingredients that go big on this important macronutrient? It’s easier (and more delicious) than you may think! Protein is an essential part of every cell in your body and plays a starring role in bone, muscle, and skin health. So, certainly, you want to make sure you’re eating enough. And it’s best to spread protein intake throughout the day, since your body needs a continual supply. This is why it can be a great idea to try to include protein in your desserts. When protein is provided in sufficient amounts in a dessert, it may help you feel more satiated and help temper blood sugar swings. Plus, in many cases, that protein comes in a package of other nutritional benefits. For instance, if you’re eating a dessert made with protein-packed Greek yogurt, you’re not just getting protein; you’re getting all the yogurt’s bone-benefitting calcium and immune-boosting probiotics, too. Adding nuts to your dessert doesn’t just provide plant-based protein, but it also provides heart-healthy fats. Yes, desserts need not be just empty calories. Ready for a treat? These protein-filled desserts with a healthy twist are dietitian-approved—and delicious.
