nori (seaweed sheet)
cucumber (thinly sliced)
sesame seeds (black or white)
Place the nori down flat on the table or countertop. Apply a thin layer of sushi rice to the nori, leaving about ½ inch around each side and gently pressing the rice to nori.
Spread sesame seeds over the rice.
Turn it upside down to have nori layer above rice.
Put two crab sticks in the center, horizontally.
Put 2 or 3 slices of avocado next to the crab sticks.
Put 2 or 3 slices of cucumber on the opposite side of the crab sticks.
Use one hand to keep the ingredients in place on the nori. Use your other hand to carefully roll up the nori as you would a burrito. Push down slightly on the sushi roll to ensure that everything stays in place.
Use a sharp knife to cut out 8 pieces of your California sushi roll. Enjoy!
