Californian Sushi roll





I don't eat much sushi but If I do anything with cooked shrimp or cooked salmon, Californian and Inari sushi are my favorite, Use any raw vegetables you like such cucumber,carrot,avocado or steamed asparagus drizzle with yum-yum sauce it taste so good, or dip into soy or ponzu sauce along with pickled ginger and wasabi



Ingredients :
-  2 cups sushi rice / Han Kuk Mi / Nisiki
- 2 1/2 cups water
- 6 fresh steamed asparagus
- Imitation crab meat/cut in stick
- 1 ripe Avocado/cut in strip
- carrot / stick
- cucumber / stick
- 6 small sheets toasted nori

How to cook sushi Rice, Basically I just follow direction on the package

preparation :

combine 2 cups rice with  2 1/2  cups water in medium saucepan,bring to a soft boil,reduce heat and simmer
covered 20 minutes or until moisture is absorbed,remove from heat,let stand covered
add seasoned rice vinegar toss them gently.


You need sushi mat + cold water
divide Rice into 6 equal portions
put a sheet nori,shiny side down on a sushi rolling mat,with the longest toward you
using wet hands ,spread 1 portion of the rice in an even layer on the nori
leaving 3/4 inch/2 cm of nori visible at the end furthest away from you


Spread a small amount of wasabi on to the rice if you like,top with an asparagus spear than add  2 pieces of crab stick alongside and a line of avocado slice


Fold the mat over,starting at the end where the ingredients are and tucking in the end of the nori to start the roll,keep rolling lifting up the mat as you work keeping the pressure but gentle until you have finished the roll,moisten the top edge of the nori with water to seal the sushi rolls closed


Remove the roll from the mat and cut into 4-5 even pieces with a wet very sharp knife


Repeat with the remaining ingredients and serve with,yum-yum, soy sauce or ponzu sauce if you like.

  1. I am not so into sushi bc I prefer the raw cuts and teppanyaki. However these rolls you have made looks good that they will be a sell out to those who love it, yum to it.

  2. This looks like a wonderful sushi roll!! I love the asparagus... well done. I don't eat sushi (like I mentioned before because I don't do raw fish)... but this is my kind of sushi! :)
