Rainbow Roll Sushi Recipe
Rainbow Roll Sushi
Rainbow sushi is a Japanese-American creation made by filling a seaweed and sushi rice wrap with crab, avocado, and cucumber, then topping it with mango slices, avocado, salmon, and tuna. The result is a beautifully colorful roll that's as fun to make as it is to eat!
Wrap your sushi mat in plastic wrap to prevent the rice from sticking to the bamboo.
Place the rough side of the ½ seaweed sheet on the mat.
Lay the ¾ cup of rice across the entire roll (you may not need all of the rice), then flip the seaweed over to unveil the smooth side.
Cut the ½ avocado into thin strips and place it lengthwise in the center of the seaweed.
If necessary, thinly slice the crab stick. Place them next to the avocado on the seaweed.
Place a few cucumber slices lengthwise on top of the avocado and crab.
Put your thumbs beneath the sushi mat. Then, lift the edge of the mat closest to your belly up and over the center filling.
Press the length of the log with your hands to ensure that all of the sushi ingredients remain together. Continue lifting and rolling the sushi mat's edge until the sushi is all in one roll.
Gently press again with your hands to ensure that the rice on the outside edge adheres together.
Place the thinly sliced fish and fruits on the sushi roll, slightly overlapping the edges. Repeat with tuna, salmon, mango, and avocado.
Place your mat on top of the sushi roll and wrap it in plastic. Squeeze the mat onto the roll to ensure the toppings adhere to the rice.
Detach the plastic wrap and cut the sushi into 8 pieces with a knife.
Serve and have fun!
