California Maki Roll

  • Lay the bamboo sushi-rolling mat on a
    cutting board with bamboo strips laid
  • Place a sheet of plastic wrap on top of
    the bamboo mat (shiny side down).
  • Place the nori on top of the plastic wrap.
    Spread a thin layer, ¾ to one cup of rice
    over ¾ of the nori leaving approximately
    one inch of uncovered nori at each end.
    (It helps to wet your fingers with cold
    water when you are patting the rice onto
    the nori.)

    cucumber along the centre of the rice;
    top with crab stick.
  • After spreading the rice on the nori,
    sprinkle with poppy or roasted sesame
