Recipe by Sue Lau
I love sushi, and can only make it on special occasions since I am restricted from eating too much rice. But this is good and I would eat it every day if I could get away with it!!! Making the sushi rice is most of the work since the rolls put together in a snap!

I love this combination. It's one of my favorites. The recipe intro is exactly right; making the rice is the most difficult part. Rolling, especially maki-style (as I did) is really a snap. I've been making sushi for awhile now, but I used this recipe to teach my oldest son, who LOVES sushi, how to make it. I garnished the plates with pickled daikon slices (yum), wasabi mayonnaise and pickled ginger slivers. Thanx!
- 1⁄2 sheet toasted nori
- 1⁄3 cup prepared sushi rice
- 1 ounce sashimi grade tuna, sliced
- 2 pieces peeled English cucumbers (2 to 3, matchstick sized pieces)
- 2 pieces sliced avocados (2 to 3)
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons mayonnaise
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons wasabi powder
- 1 tablespoon pickled ginger (optional)
- 1 tablespoon grated daikon radish (optional)
- 1 teaspoon wasabi paste (optional)
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce (optional)
