10 Steps to Making Perfect Sushi
Step 1: Take a sheet of nori and place it onto a clean smooth surface.
Step 2: Spread 2-3 tbs. of the rice mixture on to 1/4th of the nori sheet.
Step 3: Make a little indent and put 1-2 tbs. of the marinated veggies on top.
Step 4: Top that with a few pieces of the julienned avocado.
Step 5: Take 2 pinches of the sprouts and place it on the avocado and the rice.
Step 6: Get a mini spray bottle or a pastry brush and brush the top part of the sushi.
Step 7: Roll it up! You can roll the sushi with a sushi mat or use your fingers. I like to use my fingers. Use your thumbs and fingers and roll it up, when rolling, tighten the roll everytime.
Step 8: Let the roll sit for 5 minutes before cutting.
Step 9: Using a serrated knife cut the nori roll into 5-6 equal parts. Use a see-saw motion with a serrated knife to make it a perfect smooth cut.
Step 10: Plate 5 nori rolls and garnish the platter with garlic chives, edible flowers, sesame seeds. Serve with freshly grated wasabi and raw soy sauce.
