  1. In a medium saucepan, bring 325ml (10 fl oz) water to a boil. Add rice, and stir. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes. In a small bowl, mix the rice vinegar, sugar and salt. Blend the mixture into the rice.
  2. Preheat oven to 150 C / Gas mark 2. On a medium baking tray, heat nori in the preheated oven 1 to 2 minutes, until warm.
  3. Centre one sheet of nori on a bamboo sushi mat. Wet your hands. Using your hands, spread a thin layer of rice on the sheet of nori, and press into a thin layer. Arrange 1/4 of the cucumber, ginger, avocado and seafood of your choice in a line down the centre of the rice. Lift the end of the mat, and gently roll it over the ingredients, pressing gently. Roll it forward to make a complete roll. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  4. Cut each roll into 4 to 6 slices using a wet, sharp knife. Serve immediately.

Note:

You can easily find pickled ginger, nori seaweed sheets and wasabi in your local Asian supermarket.

Tip:

Make vegetarian sushi rolls by omitting the fish and adding extra vegetables if desired.
