Japanese Food


California Maki

3 half-sized seaweed sheets
1 portion Sushi rice
1 cucumber
1 avocado
150 g crab stick
sesame seeds, toasted
fish roe (masago)
1 tsp mayonnaise or (creme fraiche)



In a low heat stove, roast the seaweed sheets quickly on one side. Set aside.

Peel and remove core of the cucumber, slice it in thin strips. Sprinkle it with salt and leave alone some minutes. Then rinse off to get rid of the surplus liquidity. Pat dry to remove excess juice.

Slice the avocado in half, remove the big seed and scoop out the fruit flesh. Slice it into thin strips and follow the size of your cucumber strips.

Mix the crab stick with little mayonnaise and pinch of salt to thicken it.

Spread some portion of sushi rice evenly in a nori sheet and lay it flat. Arrange 1 cucumber strips, avocado strips and crab stick in the center. Then make an Inside-Out-roll. Pressed it slightly to form a log shape. Sprinkle with fish roe on top and all sides. And garnish with toasted sesame.

Slice and serve. Enjoy! ?
