When you get tired of tuna sandwiches, try this recipe, which takes its inspiration from the sushi bar. Canned salmon is an essential pantry staple. For the wrap, you could also use mountain bread, Lebanese bread or tortillas.

Directions Preparation:20min › Ready in:20min
Whisk mayonnaise, rice vinegar, wasabi and mirin in a medium bowl. Add salmon, spring onions and sesame seeds. Mix well.
Lay out lavash bread with the short ends facing you. Spread salmon mixture over each lavash bread, leaving a 2-cm border at the further short end. Place vegetables in a line around the lower two-thirds. Roll up and slice in half on the diagonal.
Toast the sesame seeds in a small dry frying pan, stirring constantly, until light golden and fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes.
Supermarkets stock wasabi paste in the Asian foods section. * Also known as rice wine, mirin is a sweet wine made from glutinous rice. It has a low alcohol content, and you can find it in the Asian foods section of most supermarkets.
