Healthy Breakfast Recipes- Savory Salmon Roti

In Asia, breakfast used to be a big deal. Nutritionists will say the same- that starting off your day with a powerful breakfast not only puts you in a better mood but it’s just the health-smart thing to do. Realistically though, most of us don’t have much time to prepare anything more than a quick bowl of cereal before rushing off to a busy day. I love creating healthy breakfast recipes and this Salmon Roti is for busy parents and professionals who can prep this easily and quickly the night before and assemble the next morning. Antioxidant packed and super flavorful, this is one breakfast that can be taken on the go.

Makes 4 Breakfast Rolls


4 pieces (~2 lbs) skinless salmon fillet (substitute with smoked salmon)

4 tablespoons sweet soy sauce

1/2 teaspoon salt + 1 teaspoon for yogurt

1 cup plain Greek yogurt (we like Chobani)

12 cloves garlic finely minced

8 ounces (~1 medium sized) cucumber, peeled and finely shredded

2 tablespoons fresh dill, finely chopped

4 Indian roti (available frozen in most Asian grocery stores)

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

4 large toothpicks or small skewers


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place the salmon fillets on the baking sheet and drizzle with the sweet soy sauce. Sprinkle the 1/2 teaspoon of salt evenly over the fillets. Bake for approximately 15 to 20 minutes, or 10 minutes for every inch of thickness of the fillet. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine the yogurt, garlic, cucumber, dill and the 1 teaspoon of salt, stirring until thoroughly mixed. Set aside.

In a wok or skillet, heat 1/2 a tablespoon of vegetable oil on medium high heat. Carefully slide one roti onto the oil. Cook for approximately 2 minutes on each side until golden brown and puffy. Repeat this step with the remaining oil and rotis.

On a flat surface, line the warm rotis side by side. Divide the yogurt mix evenly between the four rotis and spread all over. Add one salmon fillet on each roti. Fold the sides of the roti towards the middle to form a burrito-like shape and hold in place with a toothpick or small skewer. Serve immediately.
