Self Sagacity California Roll-ing

California Rolls are among the top popular foods in the world, why, even I know about it, being as sheltered as I am. Sometimes you will see California Rolls made with seaweed paper like mine here, and other times you will see the entire roll covered with rice on the outer.

The main ingredients used aside from salt and pepper are imitation crab meat, English cucumber, seaweed wrappers, bamboo roller, eggs cooked and cut in long lengths, wasabi powder, ginger powder, and rice vinegar.

My shortcut process is to 1) season the cooked rice first with wasabi powder and ginger powder, salt, pepper, and rice vinegar, 2) scoop rice onto the seaweed paper and fill with crab meat, cucumber and eggs, 3) start rolling with the bamboo mat while squeezing the roll tightly, 4) wet the end of the seaweed paper with water to seal the roll 5) cut into one inch rounds

Filing: To make the filing just use the inside of the imitation crab meat and onions. Use the food processor on chop.

Okay, so it's not your hardcore sushi of raw tuna or salmon, but it's one of a kind. My mother always asked that I make "sushi" whenever we have family gatherings and it's the SS California Rolls she was referring to. With many intentions of making them, I would pick-up a package of seaweed sheet every time I am at the store, and then that would be the last glance at it since I left the grocery store. I couldn't get to it for the simple reason that it takes a lot of time and work to make them.
Last week I looked in my cabinet and saw a pile of seaweed packages and realized that I had too many intentions of making "sushi" and never had the opportunity. I must at least handle them once this month, so this week, I am bringing you my homemade California Rolls.
