- 150g uncooked short-grain rice
- 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 3 tablespoons caster sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 4 nori seaweed sheets
- 1/2 cucumber, peeled, cut into small strips
- 2 tablespoons pickled ginger
- 1 avocado – peeled, stone removed and cut into small strips
- 225g smoked salmon, crab meat or tuna, flaked
Ready in: 1 hr 5 min
In a medium saucepan, bring 325ml of water to a boil. Add rice and stir. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes. In a small bowl, mix the rice vinegar, sugar and salt. Blend the mixture into the rice.
Preheat your oven to 150 C / Gas mark 2. On a medium baking tray, heat the nori in the preheated oven for 1 to 2 minutes, until warm.
Centre one sheet of nori on a bamboo sushi mat. Next, wet your hands. Using your hands, spread a thin layer of rice on to the sheet of nori and press into a thin layer. Arrange 1/4 of the cucumber, ginger, avocado and seafood of your choice in a line down the centre of the rice. Lift the end of the mat, and gently roll it over the ingredients, pressing gently. Roll it forward to make a complete roll. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
Cut each roll into 4 to 6 slices using a wet, sharp knife. Serve immediately.
Enjoy your Sushi Rolls!
