California Roll for Guests

California Roll for Guests

An incredibly stylish sushi roll.


Smoked salmon
5 slices
Cream cheese
3 tablespoons
Nori seaweed
1 sheet
White sesame seeds
to taste
Cooked rice
1 bowl
Sushi no ko (powdered sushi vinegar)
as needed
Saran wrap


1. Mix some 'sushi no ko' into the cooked rice to create some sushi rice.
2. Spread a thin layer of rice on top of some cling film that is just a little smaller than the nori sheet. Sprinkle on some sesame seeds and cover with a layer of saran wrap.
3. Flip everything over and stick a sheet of nori over the top of the rice. Line up the smoked salmon, avocado and cream cheese at the bottom of the nori and roll everything together.
4. Roll the california roll whilst still wrapped. Once the roll is closed securely, take away the saran wrap and cut the sushi roll with a wet knife to complete. If you like, place some salmon roe over the top along with a dollop of wasabi and a squeeze of mayonnaise.
