California Roll


For the last few days, I had been craving sushi. We had just moved into a new area and I had finally busted out my sushi making kit. Sushi making is a skill and an art. I think I have a ways to go in mastering this skill, with that said however, I think my maki roll turned out great. The real crab meat was definitely much better than the imitation crab that is often used.


1 cup cooked rice

2.5 tbsp of rice vinegar

1 tbsp sugar

1/2 tsp salt

1 tbsp dashi

1 nori sheet cut in half

1 avocado

1/4 cucumber sliced lengthwise and thinly

1 tbsp Japanese mayo

60 grams crab meat


To make the rice: combine rice vinegar, sugar, salt and dashi with rice then cover with cloth until ready to assemble sushi

To make the crab mixture: combine mayo with the drained crab meat

Assemble: press half the portion of rice onto nori sheet. flip over, add half of the cucumber and crab meat and a quarter of the avocado. roll the sushi on a bamboo mat. for the other avocado quarter, cut thinly and place at the seam of the roll. press and roll again. cut with a sharp knife.


makes: two rolls -one for yourself and one to share!
