Method

  1. Put the rice in a small pan with 600ml water. Bring to the boil and cook for 10 mins until the water is absorbed and the rice is tender. Stir through the vinegar and sugar, cover and cool.
  2. Skin, stone and slice the avocado. Put in a bowl and squeeze over the lemon juice, turning the avocado to ensure the pieces are covered.
  3. Divide the rice between the nori sheets and spread it out evenly, leaving a 1cm border at the top and bottom. Lay the salmon over the rice, followed by the chives and finally position the avocado across the centre.
  4. Fold the bottom edge of the seaweed over the filling, then roll it up firmly. Dampen the top border with a little water to help it seal the roll. Repeat to make 4 rolls. At this stage, the rolls can be wrapped individually in cling film and chilled until ready to serve.
  5. Using a serrated knife, cut each roll into 8 rounds. Serve with sweet soy sauce for dipping.

Very simple yet fun instruction. This is an instruction that will really help others who are afraid to try making their own sushi. If you want to know more about sushi, you may visit http://www.kanjitoronto.com

This was a first attempt - they weren't too pretty but tasted great. I had to adapt, I live abroad and have to make do with what I can find. I didn't add the caster sugar as didn't have any and also used philly cheese with avocado and skipped the salmon this time for a first attempt. From the esthetic point of view mine resembled swiss rolls not maki rolls, for a first timer - great result!

Absolutely delicious, loved how easy this was. Given me the confidence to try out a variety of flavour combinations. I will buy a small bamboo mat next time as they make it easier to tighten the roll, and I'd recommend keeping a small bowl of water next to the rice, so you can remove sticky rice from your fingers.

Smoked salmon? Isn't sushi supposed to be made with raw fish?

I assumed the recipe calls for cold smoked salmon, which is still raw fish.

I used cucumber instead of avocado but for a first time attempt it went very well.

this was really good; added some mayonnaise, but otherwise followed recipe- i'd never have thought that making your own sushi was so easy, will try variations now!
