Add a little water to some warm rice and then while it's still hot, mix the Homemade Vinegar ingredients in together stirring well by hand.
Once the rice has absorbed the vinegar mixture, use a handheld fan to cool the rice and the sushi rice is ready!
Cut the salmon, cucumber, thick omelette, avocado, and crab into easy-to-roll size pieces that are the size of the nori seaweed.
Place the seaweed on top of a bamboo sushi rolling mat, and then thinly spread out the rice you made in Step 3. Sprinkle roasted sesame seeds.
Put some plastic wrap on top of what you made in Step 5 and flip it over. Now on top of the seaweed, place the ingredients cut in Step 4 on top.
Next coat the top of what you made in Step 6 with mayonnaise. Roll it up from the end firmly pushing down as you do. Use a wet kitchen knife to cut it and it's done!
Story Behind this Recipe
This recipe uses homemade vinegar to make western style sushi. Instead of using grain or rice vinegar, I used wine vinegar.
-Use tobiko (fish roe) instead of the white toasted sesame seeds to make it more colorful. -This western style sushi is a bit more refreshing to make because I used pure wine vinegar this time. You can also use apple vinegar to give it a more fruity flavor. Of course you can also use grain or rice vinegar instead.
