Ingredients 6
Servings 1
Minutes 40-60


Serving Change
  • 4
    large nori sheets
  • 500
    prepared sushi rice
  • 3
    wasabi paste
  • 160
    fresh raw tuna, cut into strips the same length as the nori sheets
  • sliced avocado
  • cucumber strips


Cover the bamboo rolling mat with plastic wrap. Lay the nori, shiny side down on the plastic wrap. Wet your hands and use them to spread the nori with a layer of prepared rice, leaving a 3cm strip open at the end to seal the roll. Spread a small amount of the wasabi paste down the length of the nori sheet. Place a single strip of each filling ingredient on top of the rice at the bottom end of the roll. Support the fillings with your fingers while lifting the lower edge of the mat. Roll the sushi up gently,but tightly, until the two rice edges meet. Press the edges firmly together. Moisten the strip of nori that was left open with water and press to seal. Leave to rest for five minutes or cover with cling wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve. Cut into 2cm slices, cleaning the knife with a damp cloth between each slice. Serve with pickled ginger and soya dipping sauce.
