How to make your own homemade sushi

This sushi recipe is really easy to make and is the perfect dish to serve at any summer party.

What you’ll need:

  • 300g sushi rice
  • 2 tbsp. white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp. caster sugar
  • 1 large avocado
  • juice ½ lemon
  • 4 seaweed sheets
  • 4 large slices of smoked salmon
  • 1 bunch chives
  • 1 tsp. of sweet soy sauce

What you’ll need to do:

  1. Put the rice in a small pan with 600ml water. Bring to the boil and cook for 10 minutes until the water is absorbed and the rice is tender. Stir through the vinegar and sugar, cover and cool.
  2. Skin, stone and slice the avocado. Put in a bowl and squeeze over the lemon juice, turning the avocado to ensure the pieces are covered.
  3. Divide the rice between the seaweed sheets and spread it out evenly, leaving a 1cm border at the top and bottom. Lay the salmon over the rice, followed by the chives and finally position the avocado across the centre.
  4. Fold the bottom edge of the seaweed over the filling, then roll it up firmly. Dampen the top border with a little water to help it seal the roll. Repeat to make 4 rolls. At this stage, the rolls can be wrapped individually in cling film and chilled until ready to serve.
  5. Cut each roll into 8 rounds. Serve with sweet soy sauce for dipping.
