The first couple rolls we made looked very…authentically homemade, haha. But with some practice, we were rolling sushi like nobody’s business.
Learn how to roll sushi and make for California rolls, sweet potato rolls, and spicy crab rolls.

While the first person fans the rice, the other one should stir the rice gently by making a slicing motion with a wooden spoon. Rotate the bowl slightly and slice through again. It turns out that stirring in a circular motion can break apart the sushi and make it mushy. So stir gently so that you get lovely tender rice.
Once the rice is cool, set it aside.
We love sweet potatoes in our house, so we started by making these sweet sushi rolls. Preheat the oven to 450. Peel and slice the sweet potatoes.
Ever wonder what imitation crab meat is made of? It turns out this is made from pollock fish meat and a mixture of natural and artificial flavorings. The chef also told me that McD’s fish fillets are also made from pollock.
Then pick up the seaweed and rice and flip it over on the sushi mat so that the rice is facing the bamboo.
Place your fillings on top of seaweed and roll it up!
