One of my favorite types of sushi. I normally make this into "fat rolls" or Futomaki. If you are not familiar with Wasabi start with a little as you can always add more if needed. Serving size will vary depending on the thickness of your sushi. Cooking time does not include time for cooking rice
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Cut the cucumber lengthways into four and scoop out the seeds.
- 2Depending on preference, slice each quarter lengthways into thick or thin strips.
- 3On your work bench lay out a sushi mat or cling film (you can also roll by hand - which i find much easier).
- 4Place a sheet of nori on your workspace shiny side down.
- 5Put a layer of rice on your nori leaving a gap of approx 1 inch around the sides. (how much or how little rice you put on depends on your personal preference, just beware! your roll may end up morbidly obese instead of just fat).
- 6On the side closest to you put a line of wasabi paste on the rice - use your finger to do this.
- 7Place the cucumber strips on top of the wasabi.
- 8Fold the nori "lip" nearest to you over and begin rolling up the sushi like a swiss roll. Everybody rolls sushi in a different way, find what works best for you.
- 9Gently wet the last "lip" of the nori and stick it to the outside of the rolled log.
- 10Roll log onto its seam and leave for a few minutes.
- 11Dip a sharp knife into cold water and allow the excess to drp off but do not dry.
- 12Slice the log into pieces, I like a 1/2 inch slice personally. Make sure you dip and drip between each cut.
- 13Arrange on a plate and serve with either shoyu or tzatziki.
