uncooked white rice
seasoned rice vinegar
white sugar, or as needed
salt, or as needed
cooked crab meat, drained of excess liquid and shredded
nori (dry seaweed)
red caviar, such as tobiko
English cucumber, seeded and sliced into strips
drained pickled ginger, for garnish
soy sauce, or to taste
I thought this tasted very good and once prep is done assembly is easy. My only problem was the rice was a little to wet, maybe next time I'll use about a 1/4 less water when making the rice.
I did this, but I changed and added some things!
Instead of rice vinegar I used Balsamic vinegar and mixed in sugar and salt.
Than instead of mayonnaise, I used cream cheese (which is what most California Sushi Rolls use) cut into cubes placed on top of the Nori sheets along side the crab and avocado. I do not use the red caviar, cucumber, or the drained pickled ginger.
My version come out really good! The rice kinda of had a dark tint to it because of the sauce.
Liked the outcome. rolling the roll not as hard as i thought. used less salt. glad i did.
