We love Japanese Cuisine! It could be Miso soup, Udon, Soba Noodles, Ramen, Tempura Terriyaki, Edamame, Poke, Sashimi or Sushi. Wouldn't it be great if you could make your own sushi roll?! Made a few of our favorite sushi rolls with caviar on top! Made avocado crab spider roll, smoked salmon cream cheese cucumber roll, spicy crab California roll.


To make sushi at home you just need a sushi mat(easily available at Amazon) that will allow you to roll the perfect sushi roll, nori sheet (available at Amazon), sushi rice, and your desired vegetables and fish.

Nori Sheet 👇



Methods:


First, Cook the Sushi Rice :


Wash the rice and put it in a rice cooker and add three cups of water and set it until cooked.

Or you can cook the rice in a saucepan on the cooktop over medium heat until the rice is fully cooked.



Meanwhile, mix together the rice vinegar, salt, and sugar in a small saucepan and cook over medium heat until the sugar has dissolved. Let it cool and set aside.



Put the rice in a mixing bowl and pour the vinegar sauce over the hot rice and mix it.

Allow cooling a little bit before using it in the sushi mat.



Now let's make the sushi rolls :

You need a Sushi roll mat. I used a silicone mat that I bought from Amazon.

  • Put 1 nori sheet on the sushi mat and cover it with rice.

  • Wet your fingers and spread the rice evenly onto the nori sheet.

  • Lay salmon, cucumber, avocado slices along the length of the rice in a strip. Make sure not to overfill it.

  • Add a blob of cream cheese along the edge of the filling with your finger.

  • Roll up tightly into a cylinder and squeeze to seal when you reach the end.

  • Take out the green mat gently.

  • Cut the roll with a sharp knife 3/4 inch in width.
