Make the sushi rice. In a large bowl or dish, mix the sushi vinegar into the rice by using a cutting motion while fanning the rice.
Lay out plastic wrap on a sushi mat. Sprinkle the sesame seeds over the plastic wrap.
Lay the sushi rice from Step 1 out over the mat from Step 2, making sure to keep the rice layer thin and even.
Lay the nori on top of what you have after Step 3.
On top of the nori-covered rice from Step 4, carefully line up the pre-cut ingredients (salmon, avocado, lettuce), and roll up the roll, starting from the front and rolling away from you.
Peel off the plastic wrap as you go to make sure that you don't roll it up into the sushi roll. Also, make sure not to wrap too tightly, or the ingredients will squish out of the ends.
Once the whole roll has been rolled up, cut it into bite-sized pieces. Make sure to dampen the knife after each cut.
Once the whole thing has been cut, lay it out on a plate, and eat it with mayonnaise mixed with tempura crumbs or with soy sauce!
Story Behind this Recipe
I wanted to eat sushi, but all I had was salmon, so I decided to make a California Roll!
When you're rolling up the sushi roll, roll away from you, but make sure you don't roll the plastic wrap up into the roll. Also, when you're cutting the roll, make sure to use a sharp knife, wet it before each cut, and slice slowly.
