DIRECTIONS

  • Add crabmeat, light cream cheese, light mayonnaise, and green onion (if desired) to small food processor (or small mixing bowl) and pulse or beat until nicely blended.
  • Turn a burner of your stove to low flame or low heat. Wave a sheet of nori over the heat (both sides) to soften slightly.
  • Lay the sheet of nori on a bamboo sushi roller (available at import stores and Asian markets).
  • Dip your hands in warm water, and use them to spread a cup of hot, sticky rice on the nori, leaving a 1-inch border on each long side.
  • Spread about 1/4 teaspoon wasabi paste in a horizontal strip down the middle of the rectangle of rice.
  • Arrange a heaping 1/4 cup of the crab mixture (one-fourth of the total mixture) down the center of the rice rectangle.
  • Arrange avocado slices down the center as well.
  • Roll up the bamboo mat, pressing forward, to shape the sushi into a cylinder so that the two long edges of the nori meet and overlap slightly. Press the roll firmly inside the bamboo roller.
  • Remove roll from the bamboo mat and wrap it with foil or plastic wrap and keep in refrigerator until needed.
  • Repeat with remaining nori, rice, crab, and avocado. When ready to serve, cut each roll into about 8 pieces using a serrated knife. Serve with light soy sauce.
