Temaki Zushi is hand-rolled sushi, a great introduction to the world of sushi as it’s so easy to make, tastes great and you can use any ingredients that you like. Our recipe will give you some suggestions, but there really are no wrong combinations! Some of our favourites include Spicy Beef, Lettuce and Mayonnaise, Teriyaki Chicken, and Salmon and Avacado.


200g sushi rice
2 sheets nori seaweed
50ml sushi vinegar
1 tbsp soy sauce (optional)

Suggested fillings
tinned tuna with mayonnaise
tamagoyaki omelette
seafood sticks

Optional seasonings
white sesame
black sesame
yuzu kosho pepper

How To Prepare

  1. After cooking 200g of rice, mix with 50ml of sushi vinegar and leave to cool before using.

  2. Prepare your fillings in thin 10cm strips and cut the nori seaweed sheets in half.

  3. On the rough side of 1 piece of nori spread your sushi rice so that it covers the left half of it. You do not need to spread rice right to the edges.

  4. If you’d like, sprinkle some sesame seeds over the rice for extra flavour.

  5. Place the sheet of nori seaweed horizontally in your left hand (you can do this from the beginning but may find it easier after the rice has been spread).

  6. Start adding any ingredients in the centre on top of the rice. You can use any combination, but salmon and avocado often compliment each other well.

  7. Now to roll the temaki. First fold in the filled side from the left over the filling. Next roll the plain side of nori seaweed in from the right, making a cone with your hands. Secure the end of the roll with a pressed piece of moist rice taken from the filling.

  8. Your Temaki Zushi is now ready to eat, enjoy with a cup of sencha green tea.
