uncooked short-grain white rice
imitation crabmeat, finely chopped
nori (dry seaweed)
2 1/2 tablespoons
cucumber, cut into thin spears
avocados - pitted, peeled, and sliced the long way
not bad, but traditional sushi rice should have a bit of salt in it. the correct method is to add about 1 tsp salt per three cups of rice, you dissolve the salt with the sugar in the vinegar, so for one cup rice, it would be about 1/3 tsp salt. otherwise, this would be perfect.
Way too much mayonnaise ratio to finely chopped crabmeat. It drowned out the crabmeat taste. Instead of 1/4 cup mayo, I'd put 1-1.5 tbsp for 1/2 a cup of crabmeat.
The first time I make these, they came out rather large but everyone loved them. I took the recommendation and used less mayo. Then I added alittle siracha hot sauce to the mayo to make them Spicy California rolls. Very tasty!!!!!!!
This is a very good basic recipe. I make my sushi a little bit differently, though. First, I do not use any mayo with my crab - I like the flavour on its own. Also, I like to lay slices of cucumber alongside the crab and avacado - makes for a bit of a crunch. Yum!
I also added 1 tsp of salt to the vinegar. Fish roe adds not only flavor but color. Just used enough mayo to hold the crabmeat together so it won´t overpower the other ingredients. Removed the seeds from the cucumber and be generous with the sesame seeds.
I agree with a previous review, this is a great recipe for the beginner cook. I also took the advice of others & added salt to the vinegar. I also used real crab meat with a dash of sesame oil and chopped water chestnuts to give crunch, I added mayo to taste. Cooking is about creativity and doing what u like & enjoying what u create. Release the inner chef and go with it. Thank you for those who have shared!
Sushi doesn't have mayonnaise. You could also substitute another vegetable instead of avocado and only use one; two is a bit much.
this is a good basic sushi recipe, we didnt make the exact recipe yet
