Step 4: CREATION
Your rice should be cool enough to handle at this point. Locate the glass of ice water and add ice if needed. Lay out the sushi mat and place a single sheet of nori on the DRY mat.
Dip your hands in the ice water and shake off the excess. Grab some rice. About the size of a jumbo egg. Possibly a bit more. Spread it evenly along the bottom half of the nori sheet. This will be the base. It needs to be only 1 or 2 rice grains thick. VERY thin layer. Next is adding your ingredients. This can be done as you see fit. There is no set recipe for sushi rolls.
Here are a few of my combos.
Crab, Avocado, Cream cheese.
Tuna, Cream cheese, Scallions.
Tuna, Salmon, Avocado.
Tuna, Salmon, Mango.
Any order you want. Make it how you like it.
Now I know I said anything you like but.....If you just pile it in the middle, you will have a hard time rolling it.
All ingredients should be evenly distributed along the entire roll.
They see me rollin, They hatin.....SORRY!.
