Cucumber Sushi Bites

I absolutely love California rolls and cucumber rolls, but traditional rolls are so time consuming to make at home and tasty ones are expensive in restaurants, so I decided to try this for a quick fix ;-)

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup sushi rice
  • 2 Tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1 seedless cucumber, sliced width-wise about 1/4 inch wide (regular will work well in a pinch, but pat them dry a bit)
  • Ad
  • Avocado, cut in to very small bite sized pieces (coat with lemon juice to keep them from turning brown)
  • cooked shrimp, salad size
  • crab meat, small bite size
  • tuna, small bite size
  • fresh ginger, grated
  • soy sauce
  • Wasabi powder

Directions:

Cook sushi rice according to package instructions, remove from the heat, transfer to a bowl and allow to cool for ten minutes. Whisk rice vinegar and sugar well in a small bowl.

Add vinegar mixture to rice and very gently mix with a wooden spoon. With damp hands, roll about 2 teaspoons of rice in to individual balls. Very gently press balls in sesame seeds to slightly coat. Place each ball, sesame seed side up, on cucumber slices and press down slightly.

Top with combinations of avocado, crab, shrimp, tuna and a tiny pinch of ginger and press down slightly.

Mix soy sauce and Wasabi powder to taste in a small bowl to serve on the side along with a small spoon for drizzling Wasabi sauce over the Sushi bites :-)

This really works and tastes great. I can't make sushi, but I love to eat it. I didn't have all of the ingredients for the California rolls, but had raw Ahi Tuna and Salmon. It tasted great. Thanks.
