Sushi Roll Recipe

I am a huge sushi lover,so i came across this recipe and wanted to share,,,ENJOY!!!!

  • 2/3 cup uncooked short-grain white rice
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 sheets nori seaweed sheets
  • 1/2 cucumber, peeled, cut into small strips
  • 2 tablespoons pickled ginger
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 pound imitation crabmeat, flaked
  1. In a medium saucepan, bring 1 1/3 cups water to a boil. Add rice, and stir. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes. In a small bowl, mix the rice vinegar, sugar ,and salt. Blend the mixture into the rice.
  2. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). On a medium baking sheet, heat nori in the preheated oven 1 to 2 minutes, until warm.
  3. Center one sheet nori on a bamboo sushi mat. Wet your hands. Using your hands, spread a thin layer of rice on the sheet of nori, and press into a thin layer. Arrange 1/4 of the cucumber, ginger, avocado, and imitation crabmeat in a line down the center of the rice. Lift the end of the mat, and gently roll it over the ingredients, pressing gently. Roll it forward to make a complete roll. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  4. Cut each roll into 4 to 6 slices using a wet, sharp knife.
  • If you do not have a bamboo sushi mat, the easiest way to roll the sushi is to use a clean dish towel. 
Traditionally the rice is soaked in water to soften it, then cooked with a piece of seaweed (for flavor). A mixture of vinegar, salt, and sugar is poured over the hot cooked rice, and then fanned until shinny and cool.
USE BAMBOO INSTEAD OF ALUMINUM PAN for much better taste!!!!
