Looking for no-grain substitute for lox/cream cheese meal!

I'm under doctor's orders to abstain from grains and eat as many omega-3s as I possibly can - I immediately thought of lox, but eating it plain just doesn't do it for me. Anyone have ideas for a no-grain bagel/cracker substitute? Maybe kohlrabi? Or jicama?

      Definitely cucumbers. Wrap slices of lox on cucumber spears

    2. Or steamed new potatoes, halved and room temp.

      1. When my son was in preschool, he hated bread. He liked " lox and cream cheese roll 'em ups".

        1. I like to cut red or yellow bell peppers in half, fill with cream cheese and capers and top with salmon. You could also use endive leaves.

            Divine on endive....nice ever-so-slightly-bitter bite

          2. Norimaki, though I'd skip the cream cheese. Replace the rice with thinly sliced daikon.
