Ingredients

1 1/2 c
short-grain sushi rice
1 3/4 c
water
1 1/2 Tbsp
water
1/4 c
seasoned rice vinegar
1 Tbsp
sugar
1 tsp
salt
1 medium
carrot
1 1/4 tsp
wasabi paste (japanese horseradish paste)
1 1/2 Tbsp
vegetable oil
1/2 large
seedless cucumber, peeled, halved lengthwise, cored, and chopped (1 cup)
3
scallions, thinly sliced diagonally
3 Tbsp
drained sliced pickled ginger, coarsely chopped
1 Tbsp
sesame seeds, toasted
1
avocado
8
fresh shiso leaves, optional
1 6-in
square toasted nori, cut into very thin strips with scissors

Step-By-Step

1Rinse rice in several changes of cold water in a bowl until water is almost clear, then drain in a colander 30 minutes.
2Bring rice and 1 3/4 cups water to a boil in a 3- to 4-quart heavy saucepan, then simmer, covered, 2 minutes.
3Remove from heat and let rice stand, covered, 10 minutes (do not lift lid).
4While rice is standing, bring vinegar, sugar, and salt just to a boil in a very small saucepan, stirring constantly until sugar is dissolved, then cool 2 minutes.
5Spread rice in a large shallow baking pan, then sprinkle with vinegar mixture and toss with a wooden spoon.
6Shave thin lengthwise slices from carrot with a vegetable peeler, then cut slices diagonally into 1/4-inch-wide strips.
7Whisk together wasabi, remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons water, and oil in a bowl, then add rice, carrot, cucumber, scallions, pickled ginger, and sesame seeds and toss gently.
8Halve, pit, and peel avocado and cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Arrange 2 shiso leaves (if using) on each of 4 plates. Top with avocado and rice mixture and sprinkle with nori strips.
