Psst! If you haven’t already heard, sardines are the new tuna and these Paleo Fish Wraps will convert any naysayer!
True story: My 7 year old begged me to make these today! Yup, they really are THAT good. No fishy taste, easy to make and crunchy on the outside. In fact, we find that they taste very similar to tuna.
If you’re still not sure about sardines, you have got to read all about their amazing health benefits in a previous post called “Sardines are the New Tuna”. You will be amazed at all the nutrition and sustainability these littles guys pack!
*Libby’s Note to the Paleo Purist: if you’re a paleo purist, you will obviously stay away from the rice wrap. Rice is a grey area for paleo. It does not contain gluten so many who follow the Paleo diet do include white rice in their diet, however, the strict paleo-ists cut all grains (and pseudo grains) from their diet. Either way, the sardine filling is the nutritional star of the show so you won’t be disappointed!

And now for the visual learners (like myself) :)…
