- Add one cup of brown rice and two cups of water to a small pot. Bring to a boil, turn heat down to a simmer, cover and cook for 20-25 minutes.
- Meanwhile, prepare the salmon by coating with olive oil and Bragg’s sesame & ginger dressing. Cook on medium heat in a skillet for 4-6 minutes each side, or until salmon becomes flaky.
- Prepare coleslaw in a large mixing bowl. Combine broccoli slaw, avocado mayo, Bragg’s sesame & ginger sauce, soy sauce, and pepper. Mix thoroughly and set aside.
- Prepare sauce in a small bowl. Combine soy sauce, honey and ginger. Mix thoroughly and set aside.
- Once the salmon is done, use two forks and shred salmon (as you would chicken) into bite sized pieces. Set aside.
- To assemble the lettuce wraps: Add 2-3 spoonfuls of brown rice to a lettuce scoop. Next, add 3-4 heaping spoonfuls of coleslaw, followed by desired chunks of salmon. Drizzle 1-2 spoonfuls of sauce and top with lemon wedges & sesame seeds if desired.
