  • 3 pieces sashimi grade salmon sliced thinly
  • 3 pieces sashimi grad tuna slice thinly
  • 1 avocado sliced thinly same size as the fish, plus pieces for inside roll
  • 2 pieces imitation crab meat
  • 1 cucumber peeled and sliced lengthwise
  • Prepared sushi rice see soft shell crab hand roll recipe on how to make sushi rice
  • 1 piece of nori seaweed sheet
  • Eel sauce Store bought


  • On your work surface, lay a piece of seaweed smooth side up
  • Press your prepared sushi rice over eighty percent of the seaweed. (it will spread out to the edges when you roll it.)
  • Place your sushi rolling mat.
  • Put down a piece of plastic wrap over the mat and then flip the seaweed over so the rice is now on the bottom.
  • Place the cucumber slices, avocado pieces and imitation crab lengthwise and toward the bottom third of the roll.
  • Roll it up, using your sushi rolling mat.
  • Add the pieces of fish and avocado on the top part of the roll alternating pieces.
  • Using a the plastic wrap again and the rolling mat, gently roll the fish and avocado pieces onto the roll.
  • Using a very sharp knife, slice the roll into 8 pieces
  • Plate and then drizzle with the eel sauce. If you can't find eel sauce, it is also delicious by just dipping it into some soy sauce and wasabi.
  • Have fun and try it!


Please note that the time does not include making the sushi rice.
