Serves 1-2

40 mins

Ingredients
  1. 4 strips of Unagi
  2. 1-2 Avocado
  3. 4 strips of Cucumber
  4. 1 cup Cooked Short grain sushi rice
  5. Sesame oil
  6. 1 sheet of Nori seaweed
  7. 1 tbsp Rice vinegar
  8. Sugar
  9. Salt
Steps
  1. Making the sticky sushi rice: Put your cooked short grain sushi rice into a bowl and let it cool slightly
  2. In a saucepan, heat rice vinegar, sesame oil, sugar and salt and mix
  3. Once fully dissolve, turn off the heat and drizzle the mixture on the cooked rice
  4. Fluff and toss the rice until well coated
  5. Prepare the ingredients: Bake the unagi according to the package instructions
  6. Once cooked, cut your unagi into strips lengthwise
  7. While the unagi is baking, cut your washed cucumbers lengthwise into strips
  8. Creating the sushi roll: Place a bamboo mat covered with plastic wrap (the lesser cleanup the better!)
  9. Place the nori sheet (of appropriate length) onto the mat and cover it evenly with a layer of cooked rice
  10. Make sure the rice covers the nori and is well patted down
  11. Tip: dip your hands in vinegar water to prevent the rice from sticking to your hands!)
  12. Flip everything over, rice side facing down and seaweed side facing you
  13. Arrange and place as much unagi and cucumber strips as you like on top of the nori (as long as it does not overflow when wrapping!)
  14. Applying slight pressure, roll up the bamboo mat to shape the sushi
  15. Ensure that your sushi is well and tightly rolled
  16. Cut your ripe avocado in half and remove the pit and skin
  17. Slice the avocado into thin slices and place them on top of your roll
  18. Gently squeeze the avocado to the shape and adhere the slices to your roll
  19. Cut the sushi roll into appropriate slices and serve
  20. Enjoy with Japanese soy sauce and wasabi!
