I love smoked salmon sushi and enjoy the addition of cucumber, avocado and wasabi in this one. If you have never rolled your own sushi, it may take a little time to master, but you'll find it gets easier. You will need a bamboo rolling mat for this recipe. Prep time includes soaking the rice for 4 hours.

Ingredients

2 c
japanese sushi rice
6 Tbsp
rice wine vinegar
6 sheet(s)
nori (dry seaweed)
1
avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced
1
cucumber, peeled and sliced
8 oz
smoked salmon, cut into long strips
2 Tbsp
wasabi paste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Soak the rice for about 4 hours. Drain rice and cook in a rice cooker with 2 cups of water. The rice must be slightly dry as the vinegar will be added later.
2
As soon as the rice has been cooked, mix in 6 T. rice wine vinegar to the hot rice. Spread the rice on a plate or cutting board until completely cooled.
3
Put 1 sheet of nori on a bamboo mat, press a thin layer of cool rice onto it. Leave at least 1/2 inch top and bottom edge of the nori uncovered. This is for easier sealing.
4
Dot some wasabi on the rice. Arrange cucumber, avocado and smoked salmon onto the rice. Position thema bout 1 inch away from the bottom edge of the nori.
5
Slightly wet the top edge of the nori. Roll from bottom to the top edge, with the help of the bamboo mat, tightly. Cut roll into 8 equal pieces.
6
Repeat for other rolls.
