Nori seaweed

Prepared sushi rice

Crab meat, cut in pieces

Avocado, peeled and cut in fine pieces

Cucumber, peeled, seeded and cut in fine strips

Sesame seeds, toasted


  1. Cut nori sheet in half and place it on bamboo mat, shiny side down. Dampen your fingers in water. Spread a thin layer of sushi rice over the seaweed, do not cover completely. Leave a 1-inch margin at the ends uncovered to seal the roll. Lay crabmeat, avocado and cucumber lengthwise. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  2. To roll; slowly fold the end of the mat closest to you over the filling and tuck it in. Use medium pressure to create a compact tube. Remove the mat from around the roll, press in the loose ends and place it on a cutting board, seam side down. Using a wet, sharp knife, slice the roll in half then into 6 equal pieces. Serve with wasabi, soy sauce and pickled ginger.
