Makes: 12 servings Yield: 12 sushi rolls
Start to Finish 30 mins
California Sushi Rolls
Ingredients
  • 2  sheets  nori (seaweed) (each about 8 inches square)
  • 1  recipe Sushi Rice Filling
  •  Desired fillings (such as small carrot, zucchini, or cucumber sticks; avocado slices; flake-style imitation crab meat; smoked salmon (lox-style); and/or small peeled, deveined, and cooked shrimp)
  • 1  recipe Honey Ginger Sauce
Directions

1. Lay seaweed on a sushi mat lined with plastic wrap; with damp fingers, spread 1 cup of the Sushi Rice over each sheet to within 1 inch of the edge at one end. Arrange desired vegetable or seafood fillings just below center.

2. Roll seaweed toward the 1-inch unfilled edge. (To shape a tight even roll, place your hands under the edge of the mat closest to you. While carefully lifting the edge of the nori, roll the rice-topped seaweed away from you.) Press unfilled edge over top, brushing with water to seal, if necessary.

3. Cut each roll into 6 pieces; arrange on a platter. If desired, cover and chill for up to 4 hours. Serve with Honey-Ginger Sauce.

4. Makes 12 sushi rolls.
