What You’ll Need:

A Sushi Mat

Plastic Wrap

A Small Bowl

A Small Bowl Filled With Cold Water

A Pastry Brush

A Mini Whisk Or Fork

A Sharp Knife

A Damp Paper Towel

A Serving Platter

Chop Sticks (Optional)



1 Nori Sheet

3 Ounces Smoked Salmon (Nova)

1/8th of a 7-inch Hot House or English Cucumber, Cut Lengthwise

1/8th of a Small Haas Avocado, Sliced Into Strips

1 Tsp Wasabi (Optional)

1 1/2 Tsp Water (Optional)


How To Put It Together:

1) In a small bowl, whisk together the water and wasabi; set the bowl aside.


2) Lay a sushi mat on your work surface; lay the piece of nori on top of it. Starting with the edge closest to you, lay pieces of nova on the nori, working away from yourself to about half-way up the piece of nori. Just on the inside edge of your nori, spread a thin strip of the wasabi, the entire length of the roll. Now lay a cucumber strip just on the inside edge of the nori and lay the avocado pieces right next to it. Using your mat as an aid, begin to roll the sushi. As you make your first rolling action, give the roll a squeeze, this will insure a nice tight roll. When you get to bare nori, use your pastry brush to dampen the nori. If you don’t own a pastry brush, no worries, fingers work just as well. Seal off the roll with another swipe of water. Now wrap the nori roll in the plastic wrap; place it in the refrigerator to cool for an hour or so.


3) Remove the roll from the fridge; slice the roll in diagonal slices all about the same size, wiping your knife with the damp paper towel in between each slice.


4) Serve and enjoy!


Nina’s Tasty Tip:

Try other fillings with the salmon. I have enjoyed grated carrot, green onions, red pepper slices, dill sprigs, basically any veggie or herb that I happen to have in the fridge.
