    Serves: 8 

    • 150g uncooked short-grain rice
    • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
    • 3 tablespoons caster sugar
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    • 4 sheets nori seaweed sheets
    • 1/2 cucumber, peeled, cut into small strips

    1. In a medium pan, bring 325ml water to a boil. Add rice, and stir. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes. In a small bowl, mix the rice vinegar, sugar and salt. Blend the mixture into the rice.
    2. Slowly heat Nori in a frying pan on gas stove until warm or preheat oven to 150 C. On a medium baking tray, heat nori in the preheated oven 1 to 2 minutes, until warm.
    3. Centre one sheet of nori on a bamboo sushi mat. Wet your hands. Using your hands, spread a thin layer of rice on the sheet of nori, and press into a thin layer. Arrange 1/4 of the cucumber, ginger, avocado and seafood of your choice in a line down the centre of the rice. Lift the end of the mat, and gently roll it over the ingredients, pressing gently. Roll it forward to make a complete roll. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
    4. Cut each roll into 4 to 6 slices using a wet, sharp knife. Serve immediately.

    Note:

    Try to find the best quality pickled ginger, nori seaweed sheets and wasabi.

    Tip:

    Make vegetarian sushi rolls by omitting the fish and adding extra vegetables if desired.
