• nori strips, about one inch wide

  • sushi rice, about a tablespoon

  • 1 teaspoon of roe. salmon, tobiko or uni or a spicy tuna mix- your choice

  • 3 thin cucumber slices, cut in half


  • Prepare a bowl of water that is 30% rice vinegar for moistening your fingers.

  • Form the rice into a shape similar to the nigiri. Lay the rice on your board and wrap the nori strip around it completely. There should be about 1/2 inch of nori above the rice. Either moisten the loose end of the nori with water or use a grain of rice as glue. Now you have a small "boat" to fill

  • Stand the cucumber slices on the inside and add your topping.
