how to make sushi

i've learned how to make california rolls (sushi) from my friend, a sushi chef. making california rolls is quite different from nomal sushi. very interesting to me.

  • cucumber thinly sliced
  • avocado thinly sliced
  • imitation crab with mayonnaise
  • tobiko
  • sushi rice
  • nori(seaweed)

cut cucumber, avocado and imitation crab into thin sliced sticks. lay seaweed sheet on a flat surface. gently spread a light layer of rice over entire sheet. turn the sheet over. at one inch from the edge of the seaweed sheet, add ingredients in layers to cover a one inch rectangle section of the sheet. starting from the edge closest to the filling, gently fold seaweed sheet over filling, lightly pressing to form a roll. continue rolling. afterwards, using makisu(3 and 8)pressing it a little tightly. slice roll into one inch pieces. put tobiko on the sushi rolls if you want.

This is something I definitely have to make. I am not really that keen on avacado but can eat it. Putting tobiko on it will be a big "no thank you".
I have only had Califoria rolls once before but liked them. Would be fun to make them myself.
Too bad they don't usually make them in Japan.
Thanks for the recipe.
