Apex Roll

This roll was originally called something else, but since I wanted to keep SushiDay family friendly, I changed the name to something different, but technically meaning the same thing. Im sure you can guess what the original name was… but I’m not telling you if you can’t. πŸ˜› Keeping things PG-rated here πŸ˜€

Anyways, this is a really good roll… the saltiness of the smoked salmon really balances out with the coolness of the cucumber and creaminess of the mayo/imitation crab mix. Delicious!

Makes 6 rolls, or 24 pieces.

Cooking Directions
  1. Cook sushi rice.
  2. Mix imitation crab and mayonnaise, separating crab pieces and mashing into smaller pieces.
  3. Cut the avocado in half, discarding the pit.
  4. Cut off the hard skin and discard.
  5. Slice the avocado into thin sticks.
  6. Slice the cucumber into long, thin sticks.
  7. Using avocado sticks, cucumber, and the imitation crab mix as your fillings, roll the sushi inside-out.
  8. Place thin strips of smoked salmon across the top of the roll, and squeeze them into the roll with the rolling mat so they stick.
  9. Serve with wasabi, shoyu, and ginger (if desired). Enjoy!

    I’m SO glad I found this page. I am just starting out and this page is wonderful with all of its tips and recipes. The reason I comment on this recipe in particular is that the nutritional facts strike me as odd. I watch what I eat and I looked at the ingredients and it just doesn’t seem right that a roll would have 64 grams of fat and 52 grams of fiber. Other than that, everything looks spectacular! I can’t wait to try it! πŸ™‚

    Aaaah!!!! Oops. Thanks so much for pointing that out… I have fixed it now. Hehe the reason it was like that is because I use Excel to calculate my nutrition facts, and I had made a mistake in one of my formulas, so it added it up weird. Plus I was kinda in a hurry when I was posting the nutrition facts since I was trying to get them all up… so I didn’t check them to see if they were realistic. Oops! My bad. πŸ˜› I’m glad you like the site otherwise! πŸ˜€
