Directions

MAKING
1. Cut nori sheets in half crosswise. Lay 1 sheet of nori, shiny side down, on the sushi mat.
2. Wet your fingers with water and spread about 1/8 cup of the rice evenly onto the nori. Turn the sheet of nori over so that the rice side is down.
3. Place 1/8 of the cucumber, avocado and crab sticks in the center of the sheet.
4. Grab the edge of the mat closest to you, keeping the fillings in place with your fingers, and roll it into a tight cylinder, using the mat to shape the cylinder. Pull away the mat and set aside.
5. Alternate salmon and tuna slices on top of the roll, (as shown in the video) then use the sushi mat and squeeze very gently so the avocado merges with the sushi rice.
6. Repeat with remaining nori sheets.

SERVING
7. Cut each roll into 4-6 pieces.
8. Arrange on a platter and serve with wasabi or ginger-soy sauce.

NOTE
To make the sushi rice:
You will need 2 cups sushi or short grain rice, 2 cups water, plus extra for rinsing rice, 2 tablespoons rice vinegar, 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon kosher salt

Place the rice into a mixing bowl and cover with cool water. Swirl the rice in the water, pour off and repeat 2 to 3 times or until the water is clear.

Place the rice and 2 cups of water into a medium saucepan and place over high heat. Bring to a boil, uncovered. Once it begins to boil, reduce the heat to the lowest setting and cover. Cook for 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, for 10 minutes.

Combine the rice vinegar, sugar and salt in a small bowl and heat in the microwave on high for 30 to 45 seconds. Transfer the rice into a large wooden or glass mixing bowl and add the vinegar mixture. Fold thoroughly to combine and coat each grain of rice with the mixture. Allow to cool to room temperature before using to make sushi or sashimi.

Editors Review

These sushi rolls look and taste amazing. Use very fresh raw tuna and salmon. These are just like California Rolls with crab meat, avocado and cucumber but topped with tuna and salmon that make the sushi look very pretty. These are perfect for a party appetizer cause they are easy to make, easy to eat, look gorgeous on a plate and are healthy too!
