Salmon sushi recipe

If you have always wanted to know what was in that tasty sushi roll after you have ordered it in your favorite sushi restaurant, and always wanted to make it yourself, now is your chance find out exactly how to make it, and maybe even make it taste much better.

What you are going to need for the ingredients are 8 ounces of smoked salmon, which must be cut into strips, 2 cups of Japanese sushi rice, 1 cucumber, which must be peeled and sliced, 6 tablespoons or rice wine vinegar, 6 sheets of nori (dry seaweed), 1 avocado, which must be peeled, pitted and sliced and finally, 2 tablespoons of wasabi paste.

What you will have to do is soak the rice for 4 hours. The rice will then have to be drained and then cooked in a rice cooker with 2 cups of water. The rice has to be slightly dry because later vinegar will be added.

After the rice has cooked, take 6 tablespoons of rice wine vinegar and mix it into the hot rice. After that has been done, the rice has to be spread on a plate until cool.

Once that is completed, place a sheet of nori (seaweed) on a bamboo mat, then press a reasonably thin layer of cool rice on the nori. Leave for least 1/2 inch bottom and top edge of seaweed uncovered. This will benefit the sealing later. After that is done take some wasabi and dot the rice. Arrange the avocado, smoked salmon and cucumber to the rice. Position these about 1/2 inch from top and bottom of seaweed.

Wet the top edge of the seaweed slightly, then start at bottom and roll to the top edge tightly with the help of the bamboo mat. When rolling, press down firmly on the roll but be careful not to do this too hard. Pressing down on the roll will ensure that none of the contents get spilled. When they are all rolled correctly and ready to be cut, take the sharpest bread knife and place it in a bowl of boiling hot water. Make sure that only the blade of the knife is in the water and leave the it for about 5 minutes.

Once the blade is nice and hot slice the rolls into 8 equal pieces and place them on a serving plate. Repeat the process for other rolls.
