California Rolls with Fillings of Your Choice

California Rolls with Fillings of Your Choice

Lightly combine warm rice with easy sushi vinegar and let cool. Wrap up fillings and vegetables of your choice and garnish with mayonnaise!

Ingredients: 2 rolls

White rice
3 rice bowls
2 leaves
Filling of your choice (tuna, salmon, imitation crab sticks, etc.)
3 to 6 pieces
Sushi vinegar
Grain vinegar
50 ml
1 1/2 tablespoons
Kombu based dashi stock granules
1 teaspoon
1/2 teaspoon


1. Making the sushi rice: Mix the sushi vinegar ingredients until well-combined. Pour the sushi vinegar over the warm rice. Mix until barely-combined, and let cool.
2. Cut the filling: Cut the filling into evenly sized pieces so the cross section of the sushi will look neat. Cut the avocado into thin slices and shred the lettuce.
3. To roll: Spread out the sushi rice thinly over a sheet of nori seaweed and put a piece of plastic wrap on top. Flip it over. Place the fillings 5 cm from the bottom, and roll up the ingredients.
4. To finish: Slice the sushi rolls using a sharp knife. Moisten the knife with a wet towel before slicing. Arrange the California rolls on a platter and garnish with the sesame seeds, mayonnaise, and salmon roe.
