Kefir Cheese Smoked Salmon Wrap (Probiotic Sushi + Brain Food)
You will love this rice-less sushi for extra dose of probiotics from the kefir cheese. Along with smoked salmon, avocado, sesame seeds, cucumber, microgreens, this kefir cheese smoked salmon wrap, a.k.a. probiotic sushi, not only is a tasty treat, but also a super brain food to support mental health and brain functions.
Whether you make your own milk kefir at home or buy your milk kefir from stores, you can make kefir cheese. If you make your own milk kefir from milk kefir grains, you get more probiotic benefits, and you can also speed up the cheese making process with over-fermentation. I talked about how to make kefir cheese in my Raspberry Kefir Cream Cheese Spread recipe.
To recap here, you will need 4-layers of cheese cloth or a coffee filter to strain out the whey from your milk kefir. All you need to do is to pour your milk kefir into the filter. A clear yellow liquid will pass through the filer into the container you place below the filer. This clear yellow liquid is called whey – don’t throw it away, it’s full of health benefits. The straining can take a couple days for the solid left in the filter to reach the right consistency. You can totally leave the filter in the room temperature away from the sun, or in the fridge for a peace of mind. If you over-ferment your milk kefir at home until it curdles and the whey separated in the bottom of your milk kefir jar, then you can filter out a lot whey right away and shorten the straining time by quite a bit.
You can even use home-made or store-bought yogurt to make cheese too. The process is exactly the same by straining out the whey until the solid left behind reaches the consistency of the cream cheese.
Our brains need good amount of healthy fat to maintain its regular functions. The fat in whole milk kefir cheese is good for us. Salmon, avocado and sesame are all great brain foods for providing healthy fats. Women after child birth and nursing literally lose brain mass! There is a reason for the term “baby brain” – the mothers’ brains shrink in size due to the amount of fat they have to provide for the growth of the babies in the womb and while breastfeeding. Our brains are made out of mostly fat and cholesterols. If we want happy and healthy brains, it’s no time to go on a low fat diet.
You will love this “sushi” with a good dipping sauce. But not everyone has wasabi readily available in the kitchen any given time. When you don’t, you can use the dipping sauce I paired with this kefir cheese smoked salmon wrap. The amount of each ingredients is listed in the recipe section. I use dijon mustard, soya sauce and fresh lemon juice to make the dipping sauce accompanying my kefir cheese smoked salmon wrap, a.k.a. probiotic sushi. Together, they are totally delicious!

Making the Kefir Cheese
Strain the milk kefir using a coffee filter or through layered cheese cloth. Place a bowl underneath to collect the whey. This process may take a couple days, so best to let the kefir strain in the fridge.
When the kefir reaches the consistency of the cream cheese, it's ready. Do not discard the whey, as it's probiotic and can be used in other recipes.
Making the Wrap
Trim off ends of the mini cucumber, then cut into thin julienne. Remove the pit and the shell of the avocado. Cut the flesh of the avocado into 12 even slices.
Lay down 1 slice of the smoked salmon. Arrange kefir cheese, avocado, julienned cucumber, microgreens in the centre evenly distributed from left to right. Leave enough smoked salmon uncovered on the top and bottom for rolling. Wrap the smoked salmon around the fillings to make a roll. Repeat this step 12 times to make 12 rolls.
Sprinkle sesame seeds on top of the kefir cheese smoked salmon wraps.
Making the Dipping Sauce
Whisk all ingredients for the dipping sauce together. Serve with the wraps!

What Designers Can Try From Martha Stewart?
Like every housewife, Martha Stewart, a long-time developer of experience, can teach a few things to UX practitioners to bring back users for more.
You can compare the experience of spending time with people living in their homes to experience a brand. When you enter the home of a truly wonderful host, you are faced with a number of carefully designed options designed to give you a positive experience. In other words: you are experiencing the ın brand ”of that household.
Pleasant tastes, ambience and lighting, welcoming cuddles and talking, the best hosts are planning every experience that their guests will experience, taking into account all their senses and emotional reactions. Like every brand, good hosts want their guests to come back for more.
Although some houses have played a role in persuading people to carefully consider their guests' multi-sensual needs while Martha Stewart, Candice Olson, and Jonathan Adler had such personalities, many homeowners have done this in multiple points of contact for generations. In many ways, we can say that homeowners are original experience designers.
Like every good host, brands also want consumers to enjoy the experience of their products. However, very often, they do not understand the spectrum of the multi-sensory needs of their customers and thus fall behind the expectations of the meeting.
Brands, Martha, Candice and Jonathan, by considering the three important principles, including the best daily hosts, brands can design meaningful, multi-sensory experiences and establish long-term relationships with customers.
