Sushi salmon rolls

Maki is a great Japanese sushi dish consisting of sushi and raw vegetables, wrapped in seaweed. Well, if you want to make your own maki at home, learn from a professional, like in this video. He'll teach you how to make the perfect spicy
salmon maki sushi roll.



  • 1 packet nori squares
  • 400g short-grain sushi rice
  • wasabi paste
  • 1 cucumber
  • Place each square of nori flat onto a sushi rolling mat. (Sushi rolling mats are available from Asian supermarkets and larger supermarkets.)
  • Place a layer of cooled sushi rice onto the seaweed wrap and gently press flat. (NB: don’t add too much rice or you will end up with very fat sushi rolls.)
  • Place a dab of wasabi paste along the rice, according to taste. Wasabi is quite strong, so be sparing!
  • Place a thin slice of salmon onto the rice.
  • Spread the strips of cucumber onto the salmon and add a sprinkling of spring onion.
  • Carefully roll the sushi up into a sausage shape and slice it into 3cm/1in long pieces, trimming the ends.
  • Serve with bowls of soy sauce and extra wasabi.
  • Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
