Ingredients

Serves: 6 people

  • 1 small Carrots
    peeled and cut into matchsticks
  • 6 sheets Filo Pastry
    thawed, or rice paper
  • 2 tsp Lime
    juice only
  • 1 - Onion
    thinly sliced

Method

  1. Cook the quinoa as per the packet instructions. Leave to cool, then add the soy sauce, lime juice and chopped mint. Stir to combine.
  2. Half fill a large, shallow dish with warm water. Place one sheet of rice paper in the water just until soft. Transfer to your work surface.
  3. Place one slice of smoked salmon along one edge of the rice paper. Top with 1 tablespoon of the quinoa mixture and some onion, carrot and red pepper. Roll up tightly, folding in the top and bottom edges to enclose the filling.
  4. Cover the finished rolls with a clean, damp tea towel to prevent them from drying out. Repeat with the remaining rice paper and filling to make five more rolls.
  5. To make the dip, mix together the Greek yogurt and sweet chilli sauce in a small bowl.
  6. Eat the rolls straight away or refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 2 days. Serve with the dip on the side.
