California Sushi Rolls

Good news folks! I finally made my first California Rolls for the first time and we had a blast. It turns out really good plus I made some for my bosses at my place of work. Though I didn't follow everything that was written on the procedures but it still turned out great. Below are the lists of ingredients.


4 pieces of Sushi Nori sheets (cut in halves, optional)
1 large piece of cucumber, slice in 1/8 inch thick pieces
2 pieces of medium avocado, slice in 1/4 thick pieces
1/4 cup of sesame seeds
5-6 pieces of crab sticks/ crab meats
2 tablespoon of white sugar
3 cups of rice (sushi rice), cooked
1 teaspoon of salt
2 tablespoon of rice vinegar


1. Combine sugar, rice vinegar and salt in a small bowl.
2. Mix them well or you can put them for 10 seconds in the microwave to make sure that the sugar and salt are fully dissolved.
3. Pour the mixture of rice vinegar, sugar and salt into the sushi rice. Set aside.
4. Cut the sushi nori in halves (optional), Lay the shiny part of the sushi nori in a flat surface.
5. Scoop some sushi nori and spread it all over the nori (make sure to distribute them evenly).
6. Sprinkle some sesame seeds all over the top of the sushi nori.
7. Cover the mat with clingy wrapper.
8. Place the mat on a flat surface then put the sushi nori with rice over the mat. 9. Arrange the crab stick, cucumber and avocado in the center of the sushi sheet.
10. Grab the edge of the mat, keeping the fillings in place with your fingers, and roll it into a tight cylinder, using the mat to shape the cylinder. Set aside.
11. Continue doing the whole process until all mixtures are used.
12. Cut into equal sizes. Place the sushi rolls in a serving plate and eat them with soy sauce or wasabi. Enjoy!
