California Roll recipe

Popular not just in California but around the world, this Americanized sushi has one of the most appealing flavors for all ages. Crabmeat, mayonnaise, and avocados are a classic combo that will keep your family asking for sushi seconds.


1 cup sushi rice
8 nori seaweed sheets
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
½ cup imitation crabmeat, finely chopped
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 avocado, peeled, thinly sliced lengthwise
½ cucumber, peeled, cut into long, thin matchsticks


Lay the nori sheets out on a flat rolling surface. Spread the sushi rice evenly over the sheets or seaweed, and sprinkle the sesame seeds over the surface.

Place the crabmeat and mayonnaise in a small bowl and mix until well combined.

Spread the crabmeat mixture evenly down the center of each nori roll, and top with avocado and cucumber slices.

Roll the sushi into a log jelly-roll style. Slice into ¾-inch pieces and serve immediately.
