Salmon Sushi Roll with Soy Paper

Soy Bean Paper or Mamenori is a contemporary sushi wrapper used in not many Japanese restaurant today because not many people know about it's existence and it's quite pricey. Soy Paper Soy paper is used as an alternative to roasted seaweed(nori) when making sushi rolls. It can also be used in place of spring roll wrappers or rice paper. Mamenori comes in a variety of colors including pink, yellow, orange, green and natural color. I bought a pack of 5 pieces Soy Paper and Mishu love it when I wrapped maki for her .Usually when I wrap maki with seaweed,she will eat everything in the maki except seaweed/nori. If you're not a seaweed lover or can't tolerant it's essence ,soy paper is not a bad choice at all.

I saw this type of wrappers at Wegmans but never try any. Are they as chewy as the normal seaweed wrappers?

We're still trying to perfect the soy paper wrap. For those of you that make sushi at home, trust me, soy paper rolling is not as easy as nori because nori is naturally sticky. The soy paper just falls apart and then the roll falls apart!!!
