    rsarahl's Note:

    Yummy shrimp maki! Serve with low sodium soy sauce for a heart healthy treat or indulge in your favorite dipping sauce. For a vegetarian version, omit the shrimp and add extra slices of carrot and avocado. Makes 6 servings as a main course or 48 appetizers.

      This was my first try at making sushi rolls. I made them with veggies only, and they were terrific - just like the ones I've had out. Being a beginner roller, I felt like I was all-thumbs, but I know that will get better with practice. Luckily, I'm willing to practice verrry hard! :-) Thanks for the great recipe with excellent instructions, rsarahl.
