Japanese chefs are excellent at their craft. They've even developed a special way to make an omelette, layer by layer, into the shape of a gold bar. This is fine for creating a rectangular slice of omelette to lay on top of the sushi rice, but we use a simpler cooking method and roll the egg inside the nori sheet.
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
For Omelette:
3 large eggs
2 tablespoons water
1 1/2 teaspoons mirin
1 1/2 teaspoons soy sauce
Pinch of salt
1 teaspoon canola or vegetable oil  
For Sushi:
5 dried nori sheets
3 3/4 cups Sushi Rice (see recipe)
5 teaspoons wasabi paste
10 thin stalks asparagus, trimmed, blanched
2 large carrots, peeled, cut into matchstick-size strips, blanched

Accompaniments: soy sauce, wasabi paste, pickled ginger
Other necessary recipes:
Sushi Rice
DIRECTIONS
FOR THE OMELETTE:
Whisk first 5 ingredients in small bowl to blend well. Heat oil in a heavy nonstick 8-inch-diameter omelette pan over low heat. Add egg mixture; cook until omelette is beginning to set, about 2 minutes. Using heat-resistant nylon spatula, turn omelette over and cook until just cooked through, about 1 minute. Slide omelette onto to cutting board; cool. Cut omelette in half then slice each half into 1/4-inch-wide strips.


FOR THE SUSHI:
Place one nori sheet shiny-side down on bamboo sushi mat. Using rice paddle, spread 3/4 cup Sushi Rice over nori forming 1/4-inch-thick layer and leaving 1/2-inch border on long sides. Spread 1/2 teaspoon wasabi horizontally down center of rice. Arrange 1/5 omelette strips, 2 asparagus stalks, and 1/5 carrot strips over wasabi.


Starting with long edge nearest you and using bamboo mat as aid, roll rice-coated nori around fillings jelly-roll style. Using gentle pressing motion, compress roll forming round or square roll. Remove mat. Using very sharp sushi knife, cut roll crosswise in half. Cut each half into 4 pieces, forming 8 pieces total. Repeat with remaining nori, rice, 4 teaspoons wasabi and vegetables.


Serve sushi with accompaniments.
