  • "Temaki" means "handroll" in Japanese.
  • These cone shaped rolls are a variation of a regular maki. They can be filled with any assortment of fillings.
  • Temaki are eaten whole and are not usually cut into smaller pieces.
  • Temaki should be eaten quickly as they don't hold their shape well.

  • sushi rice
  • nori sheets cut in 1/4
  • fish and vegetable choices should all be cut about 2 inches long. I like to cut the fish into thicker strips and the vegetables into many thin strips.
  • For our class, we use cucumber and tuna


  • Prepare a bowl of water that is about 30% rice vinegar for moistening your fingers.
  • Hold the nori in your left hand and place an oblong of rice on the left side of the nori. Flatten the rice and make a groove in the rice for ingredients. Leave one corner without rice. Smear lightly with wasabi.
  • Add your fillings
  • Fold the corner over the rice to make a pointed end.
  • Now use your fingers to roll into a cone shape. Moisten the nori with water or use a piece of rice for glue.
  • Practice makes perfect on these rolls!
