Recipe's preparation

  1. Place the rice into the simmering basket and rinse under cold water.

    Place the basket into the jug and measure in the water.

    Cook 16-18mins/110°C/ sp 3, or until cooked.

    Remove basket, drain well.
    Tip the hot rice into a bowl and stir through app 2-3 tablespoons of the Sushi seasoning ( to taste).
    Place in the fridge to cool.
  2. Sushi seasoning
  3. Dissolve the sugar and salt (in a small saucepan) over medium heat on the stove. Stir until dissolved and set aside to cool.
  4. Assembly
  5. Unroll your Sushi mat on the table.

    Place a nori sheet, shiny side down on top of the mat.

    Spread a couple of handfuls of the cooled rice rice evenly over the nori, pressing down lightly.
    Leave a small border on the top and bottom of the sheet to assist in the rolling.

    Combine the drained tuna and mayo in a small bowl.

    Place a strip of cucumber, avocado slices and some tuna mix, down the bottom 3rd of the roll.

    Roll up the sushi mat, squeeze when it meets the nori, then repeat and squeeze again. *See the link to more detailed instructions.*

    Using a sharp knife, slice each roll into 4.
    Place in the fridge for an hour or so to soften the nori slightly.

    Serve with pickled ginger, soy and Wasabi on the side.

    Excellent. Thank you so much.

    Can't believe I made it. I used tinned tuna, kewpie Mayo and a bit of wasabi mooshed together, along with cucumber batons and sliced avo. Delicious. Look forward to doing again with other ingredients.

    Tried with full sheet, worked better for me than half sheet, but, a bit on the big side for bite sized snacks. Also mixed it up placing mixture along bottom 3rd or centre (only on full sheet), bottom 3rd seem to roll easier and more evenly for me, husband voting that way was preferred look.

    And again for snackies, using half sheet, tuna/kewpie mayo mix with cuey batons. Prawns with slight chili and avo. Salmon and asparagus with light wasabi spread. Avo, carrot and cuey batons with mayo/wasabi spread. Used almost 2 cups of rice, 6 sheets, less than 200 grams of each filler.
