4. Rub some sesame oil on your hands so the rice doesn’t stick on your hands. Grabbing your rice mix in small handfuls, mould together and place it into the cucumber halves.

5. Add the salmon mixture on top of the rice and top with sesame seeds and coriander. 

6. Mix the spring onions, rice vinegar, lemon and tamari into a small sauce dish to serve.
