Authentic California Roll

Authentic California Roll

I was taught this recipe in California.

Ingredients: makes 3 rolls

Sushi rice
3 rice bowls' worth
Nori seaweed
3 sheets
Sesame seeds
to taste
Avocado
1
Imitation crab sticks
9
Shrimp
3
Flying fish roe
2 tablespoons
Mayonnaise
3 tablespoons
Cucumber
1
Shiso leaves
9

Steps

1. Lay the nori→sushi rice→sesame seeds on top of a sushi mat, in that order. Leave 3 cm on the far side of the nori sheet without rice, so that you can roll it easily.
2. Turn it over, and lay the fillings on top of the nori. Leave about 3 cm of space from the bottom so that you can roll it!
3. Roll it up tightly, holding the fillings with your middle three fingers, and roll up with the palms of your hands.

Story Behind this Recipe

This is a recipe I learnt in California. These are rolls are filled with shrimp, flying fish roe and crab sticks. It might be a lot of filling, but this combination is what makes it so good. We make this a lot in my house.
