  • bowl


  • piece English cucumber julienned
  • 1 whole ripe avocado sliced
  • 1 sheet nori cut into 4 by 3 cm pieces
  • 1 Large Carrot peeled
  • 7 sheets rice paper small
  • Salmon mixture
  • 4 ounces Smoked Salmon
  • 3 tbsp Kewpie mayo
  • Seasoned Sushi Rice
  • 3 cups sushi rice cooked
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt


Step 1: Preparing The Filling

  • To create the enticing combination of flavors within the Rice Paper Sushi Roll, start by julienned English cucumber and slicing the ripe avocado. These crisp and creamy ingredients will provide a refreshing contrast. Cut a sheet of nori into small rectangular pieces and set them aside.

Step 2: Preparing The Carrot

  • Peel the large carrot and carefully slice it into thin, matchstick-like strips. This will add a vibrant pop of color and a slight crunch to the sushi roll.

Step 3: Assembling The Sushi Roll

  • Fill a shallow dish with warm water. Dip one rice paper sheet into the water, ensuring it is fully submerged for a few seconds until it becomes pliable. Place the dampened rice paper on a clean surface such as a cutting board or a sushi rolling mat.

Step 4: Adding The Ingredients

  • Arrange a small amount of seasoned sushi rice onto the bottom third of the rice paper sheet. Add a slice of smoked salmon, followed by a dollop of Kewpie mayo. Next, place a few cucumber and avocado slices over the salmon, and finally, top it off with a few strips of carrot.

Step 5: Rolling The Sushi

  • Carefully lift the bottom edge of the rice paper and gently fold it over the filling, ensuring a snug fit. Tuck in the sides and continue rolling upwards, applying gentle pressure to secure the roll. Repeat the process until all the filling is used.

Step 6: Cutting And Serving

  • With a sharp knife, cut the completed sushi roll into bite-sized pieces. Arrange them on a serving plate or a traditional sushi platter, garnishing with additional cucumber or avocado slices for an eye-catching presentation. Serve chilled or at room temperature for optimal enjoyment.


  • – Soak the rice paper sheets one at a time to avoid them sticking together.
  • – Use a clean surface such as a cutting board or a sushi rolling mat for assembling the sushi roll.
  • – Wet your hands lightly when handling the rice paper to prevent it from sticking to your fingers.
  • – Do not overfill the sushi roll with ingredients to prevent it from becoming too bulky.
  • – Ensure the knife you use to cut the sushi roll is sharp to create clean and precise cuts.
