- 2 cups sushi rice
- 4 sheets nori (seaweed)
- 1/2 pound fresh sushi-grade fish (such as tuna or salmon)

- 1 avocado
- Soy sauce, for dipping
- Pickled ginger, for serving

- Start by washing the sushi rice until the water runs clear.
- Prepare your sushi vinegar by mixing rice vinegar, sugar, and salt. Fold this into the cooked rice while it’s still warm, then let it cool to room temperature.
- Place a bamboo sushi rolling mat in a plastic wrap to prevent sticking. Lay a sheet of nori on the mat.
- Wet your hands to prevent the rice from sticking, and spread a thin layer of sushi rice over the nori, leaving a small border at the top.
- Add your choice of fish, cucumber, and avocado as fillings.
- Roll up the sushi, using the bamboo mat to help shape it into a tight cylinder.
