Sushi is actually easy to make at home if you have the right tools. A well-equipped sushi kit has all the necessary components packaged for you in one box: bamboo sushi mat, rice paddle, wasabi, nori, soy sauce, rice vinegar and pickled ginger. All you need to do is to select the freshest ingredients
Ingredients 8 nori sheets Sushi Rice 2 tablespoons wasabi paste 1 hothouse cucumber, cut into matchstick-size strips 4 ounces crab meat 1 avocado, pitted, peeled, cut into strips 10 ounce bag fresh spinach leaves, blanched, excess liquid squeezed out 1/4 pound ahi tuna, cut into matchstick size strips
Method Working with 1 nori sheet at a time, place nori sheet shiny-side down on bamboo sushi mat. Using rice paddle, spread 3/4 cup Sushi Rice over nori sheet forming 1/4 inch thick layer and leaving 1/2-inch border along the long sides. Spread very thin horizontal strip of wasabi (less than 1 teaspoon) over middle of rice. Arrange 1/8 of cucumber, crab meat, avocado, spinach and tuna horizontally over wasabi
Starting with long edge nearest you and using bamboo sushi mat as aid, roll rice-coated nori around fillings jelly-roll style. Using gentle pressing motion, compress roll forming round or square roll.
Remove mat. Cut roll crosswise into eight 3/4 inch slices. Repeat.
Serve sushi with soy sauce, additional wasabi and pickled ginger
