4 cut rolls


  • 1 ⅓ cups water

  • cup uncooked short-grain white rice

  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar

  • 3 tablespoons white sugar

  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt

  • 4 sheets nori seaweed sheets

  • ½ pound imitation crabmeat, flaked

  • 1 avocado - peeled, pitted, and sliced

  • ½ cucumber, peeled, cut into small strips

  • 2 tablespoons pickled ginger


  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).

  2. Bring water to a boil in a medium pot; stir in rice. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and water has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.

  3. Mix rice vinegar, sugar, and salt in a small bowl. Gently stir into cooked rice in the pot and set aside.

  4. Lay nori sheets on a baking sheet.

  5. Heat nori in the preheated oven until warm, 1 to 2 minutes.

  6. Center 1 nori sheet on a bamboo sushi mat. Use wet hands to spread a thin layer of rice on top. Arrange 1/4 of the crabmeat, avocado, cucumber, and pickled ginger over rice in a line down the center. Lift one end of the mat and roll it tightly over filling to make a complete roll. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

  7. Use a wet, sharp knife to cut each roll into 4 to 6 slices.


If you do not have a bamboo sushi mat, the easiest way to roll sushi is with a clean dish towel.
