Low FODMAP Sushi Bowls with Smoked Salmon & Wasabi-Lime Mayo

  • Author: Em Schwartz, MS, RDN

  • Yield: 4 1x
  • Diet: Low Lactose


Low FODMAP Sushi Bowls are filled with brown rice, smoked salmon, nori, crunchy low FODMAP veggies, and a creamy wasabi-lime dressing.



Sushi Rice

  • 2 cups cooked rice 
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar

Wasabi-Lime Dressing (makes about ¼ cup)

  • 1 teaspoon wasabi powder + 1 teaspoon water
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice

Bowl Toppings

  • 8 to 9 ounces smoked salmon (made with low FODMAP ingredients), sliced into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 cup carrot matchsticks (about 2 medium)
  • ½ cup cucumber matchsticks (about cucumber)
  • 1 nori sheet, sliced into thin strips (about ½ cup loosely packed)

Optional Additional Toppings (per bowl): ¼ teaspoon sesame seeds; ⅛ avocado, sliced; 1-2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce (or tamari sauce for gluten-free)


  1. If not cooked, prepare rice according to package directions. In a medium bowl, whisk together rice vinegar and sugar. Add cooked rice and stir to mix. I like to transfer the rice to the fridge to help cool it down (closer to room temperature) while I prepare the other ingredients.
  2. In a small bowl, mix wasabi powder and water until paste forms. Let sit 2-3 minutes to allow wasabi flavor to develop. Add mayonnaise and lime juice. Stir until smooth and set aside.
  3. When ready to serve, place ½ cup rice into four bowls. To each bowl, add approximately 2 ounces salmon, ¼ cup carrot matchsticks, 2 tablespoons cucumber matchsticks, and 2 tablespoons nori.
  4. Serve each bowl with 1 tablespoon wasabi-lime dressing and optional sesame seeds, avocado, and soy sauce.
