Crab and Tuna Sushi
- Active Time 30m
- Total Time 30m
Sushi is traditionally made with a bamboo sushi mat. Wrapping the mat with plastic wrap is a common practice that makes cleanup a bit easier. Also, the plastic prevents the rice from sticking when you are preparing inside-out rolls. There are usually ten sheets of nori in each package, which yields extras just in case you make a mistake or just want to experiment. Sushi is served with pickled ginger.
- 8 nori sheets
- Sushi Rice
- 2 tablespoons wasabi paste
- 1 hothouse cucumber, cut into matchstick-size strips
- 4 ounces crabmeat
- 1 avocado, pitted, peeled, cut into strips
- One 10-ounce bag fresh spinach leaves, blanched, excess liquid squeezed out
- 1/4 pound ahi tuna, cut into matchstick-size strips
- Additional wasabi paste
- Pickled ginger
Working with 1 nori sheet at a time, place the nori sheet shiny-side down on a bamboo sushi mat. Using a rice paddle, spread 3/4 cup Sushi Rice over the nori sheet, forming a 1/4-inch-thick layer and leaving a 1/2-inch border along the long sides. Spread a very thin horizontal strip of wasabi (no more than 1 teaspoon) over the middle of the rice. Arrange 1/8 of the cucumber, crabmeat, avocado, spinach and tuna horizontally over the wasabi.
Starting with the long edge nearest you and using the bamboo sushi mat as aid, roll the rice-coated nori around the fillings jellyroll-style. Using a gentle pressing motion, compress the roll, forming a round or square roll. Remove the mat. Cut the roll crosswise into eight 3/4-inch slices. Repeat.
Serve the sushi with soy sauce, additional wasabi and pickled ginger.
