I love sushi. All types! I haven’t found a sushi place since we moved out here about a year and a half ago, so I figured I might as well try to make some at home. I wanted to try an easier recipe so I can “work up to” the harder ones, California rolls sounded like fun too! I used my rice cooker to make the rice, so easy. And used imitation crab so the sushi was also pretty inexpensive.
My dad and I would always go out for sushi when we lived in SoCal and we had our favorite spot. I miss being able to go hang out with my dad as often as I could, so making and eating this sushi made me think of him! When he and my step-mom come out to visit, we will have to get some sushi nearby ❤️
For my California roll, I didn’t put cucumber in it. I’m not a cucumber fan, so if it’s in the sushi at a restaurant I will eat it, but I won’t go out of my way to buy it 😂 I used imitation crab, as I mentioned above, nori (seaweed for sushi), Nishiki rice, and avocado. For the sushi rice, I have a recipe below. Make sure to let your sushi rice cool down before applying to the nori. I was in a hurry and didn’t let it cool down as much as I should have so it made the nori weep some. It was still tasty though 😋 Check out my pics and both recipes! Enjoy!
