Filling and Assembly
- Lay a sushi mat on a flat surface and place a sheet of nori on top, shiny side down.
- Spoon 1/4 of the rice over the nori and spread with your fingers, leaving at least 1" at either end.
- Arrange strips of avocado, cucumber, carrot and pepper along the edge of the rice closest to you.
- Spread a small but even amount of tuna on top of the vegetables.
- Begin rolling up the nori, pressing it with your fingers to create a tight cylinder.
- Moisten the far edge of the nori to seal.
- Repeat process with remaining ingredients.
- with a sharp (I prefer serrated) knife, cut each cylinder into 6 pieces.
- serve with tamari, wasabi and pickled ginger.
