California Roll

California Roll

I think these look fancier than traditional futomaki fat sushi rolls. They make good party treats, too.

Ingredients: 4 rolls

★For the sushi vinegar:
5 tablespoons
5 tablespoons
1 teaspoon
Hot cooked white rice
3 rice cooker cups
Nori seaweed
4 sheets
White sesame seeds
to taste
Red leaf lettuce
4 leaves
Smoked salmon
4 pieces
Flying fish roe
1 pack
Radish sprouts
to taste
to taste


1. Make the sushi vinegar by combining the vinegar, sugar, and salt in a bowl and heating in the microwave for about a minute. Mix with the cooked rice, which should be cooked on the firm side, using a little less water than usual, then cool.
2. Lay a sheet of nori on the sushi mat. Cover this evenly with a thin layer of sushi rice, then sprinkle with a layer of sesame seeds. Cover with a sheet of cling film, then flip everything over (except for the mat).
3. Place the red leaf lettuce over the nori seaweed and then arrange the ingredients (such as smoked salmon, avocado, and radish sprouts) not in the center, but near the edge closest to you. Then roll!
