Then you’re going to spread the sushi rice along the entire surface of the seaweed. Don’t forget to wet your fingers with a mixture of water and vinegar to keep the rice from sticking too much.

Next, line your ingredients along the side closest to you. You can add other vegetables or herbs such as cilantro, carrots or tomato if you want. The options are endless! I just used cucumber and avocado with the tuna mixture. My tuna mixture consisted of tuna, mayo, sriracha, chipotle seasoning, and salt and pepper to taste.


Then roll! Remember, when you’re rolling sushi, you have to curve it over the seaweed. If you just roll the whole thing up the mat will get stuck in between!

Next, cut your roll. Make sure your knife is really sharp. If your knife gets sticky from the rice, use a rag with vinegar and water to wipe it clean.
